    Update on Terry Miller?

    I have a custom grind cam (bigger than 2.5) that I ordered almost a year ago, so maybe it's sitting on their shelf. I sent Terry money for it and to start my crank/head, but I'm guessing he didn't pay Web for the cam... I have basically the same mods in mine except a genuine Keihin PWK, custom PoweRing/supertrapp end cap and an FMF powerbomb head pipe that has been enlarged where it meets the muffler. I think it's an excellent trail/woods engine that has a very broad power-band from idle to about 8k. I still have a mildly ported spare head from Terry that I haven't put on it yet that should give a nice boost as well. Haven't checked the cam lobes, but it hasn't gotten any louder after about 2 seasons. It actually got a little quieter after 40-50 hours.

    Stroker kits

    I would be interested in 2 or 3mm stepped pin kit.

    Think I am screwed!

    Yeah, I would definitely be in on the bore kit group buy. I can machine my own cases. In fact, one set of cases has been sitting on a bench since March, waiting to be bored...

    I have an address in Crooked River, OR that I sent parts/money to.

    Increasing Stator Power

    I think my original BD headlight bulb was a 35 watt and my 230 didn't have any problem running it (along with an LED tail light). At a low idle it would dim a little bit, so as RedMesa just posted, around 35 watts is probably the limit if you want full brightness at idle.
  6. I usually wear an EVS body armor with full elbow/back protection and kidney belt. It gets warm when it's hot and humid on a really slow and technical trail, otherwise it breathes pretty well and is worth it to me for all that protection. Even just nicking the side of trees going by in the woods hurts without armor.

    tonight is NOT my night

    Good excuse to upgrade to a better performing carb than stock...

    Increasing Stator Power

    My 230 came with a Baja Designs headlight (I don't think the stock stator has been touched). It put out decent light for a 35w bulb, but I go out in the mountains for a couple weeks every summer and wanted something bright because we sometimes stay out till dark. Fortunately, the BD headlight has an H4 bulb and, as Tom already pointed out, gives you many more options for LED. I just got a cheap H4 $20 LED bulb with hi/low that can run on AC power off ebay. It has worked flawlessly for the past 2 seasons and is very bright. I usually just leave it on while riding to test it's longevity and to be better seen by others. I've ridden my backyard trails at night with it and my lap times were pretty much the same. Sorry, that doesn't answer your original question, but just thought I'd thrown in my 2 cents...

    facts on the new CRF250f

    Considering this is the almighty, girly 230F population, you should probably realize that we aren't in that 99%, lol...

    230F and Hare Scrambles

    Y'all must really be abusing the clutch. My 223cc build is still going strong after a couple seasons with a few off-road races earlier this year. Still on the original clutch (2005) with no mods as far as I know and haven't felt any slipping. I always have a finger on the lever and use it often in the woods to lug in a higher gear, but I'm not spooling up like I'm riding a 125 2-smoker.

    facts on the new CRF250f

    I'd be fine with the EFI, especially if it works well and they come out with an easy to use fuel controller for it that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. More weight definitely sucks, 2" longer wheelbase is less preferable in the woods, the smaller gas tank is dumb for an off-road bike, going to an over-square bore will probably kill some of the off-idle torque that we love about the 230, but having the 5-speed, like y'all have been saying, is just...... Why? I see no point in taking 1 gear away unless the engineers couldn't figure out how to efficiently have 6 in this newer engine platform. I know it can't be to save weight.....

    230F and Hare Scrambles

    How much does your son weigh (if you don't mind me asking), and what are 'usual suspension mods'?
  13. mx4god

    I have to modify my bike

    Haha, are you from the 'Pro Racing' sub-forum? Sounds like you are bored and made a new account. On a side note, the stock suspension on a 230F is a lot more dangerous than your XR250 suspension if you are at all aggressive.

    Think I am screwed!

    I sent a 230 head, crank, and cam, as well as 400 back in March to get things going because I had gotten work done from him the previous year... Good thing it was a spare engine. Haven't heard from him since May 1st this year. If he's actually out doing natural disaster work, then he probably won't be at his shop...

    CRF250F Pics and Mods

    I think you might be surprised how many would buy a better 230F from Honda if they did it right. With that said, I would probably agree with you that it's probably not enough to make it worthwhile for Honda if we're strictly talking profit. As far as modding these little girly bikes, I think I have around 3300 into mine (including the bike), and a little over 1k was just in suspension mods to get a different shock and forks that are set-up properly for me. I'm far from a pro rider, but I am much more confident and able to ride tougher terrain faster/longer on this bike than any other trail/race bike I've owned or ridden. I'm not trying to make you change your mind. That's just how I feel about it.
