    CRF 230 issue

    A friend of my son asked if I could fix his dirt bike (230). He said he had it stuck in mud/water up to the seat. So he brought it over and I rode it and came to the conclusion the clutch is gone. Basically, you go into 2nd-3rd gear, it will barely move. Took clutch apart and yes it was gone, shot, really bad. All the cork or whatever on the disk were gone plus everyting was totally black. I has some issues changning the clutch mainly because , I never did one on a CRF230. So I change the clutch and the bike does the same thing. It will start right up, sounds good but when you go it barely moves. Any ideas ?

    CRF 230 - Clutch

    This is the INNER side of the clutch cover. As you can see that's the plunger thing that goes in when clutch lever is squeezed. This is when cover is on. You can twist that(where clutch cable attaches to) with you hand. Very little resistance that's only from the spring

    CRF 230 - Clutch

    OMG nevermind, yes I know what I am doing. Trust me. I am not a Honda person, never have, never will be. No I am not a "pro" but my kids raced MX for 10yrs and worked on Cobra's, to KTM 65, YZ 85,KLX110's, YZ250F, KX250F, NO HONDA. just asking one simple question. Yes good point I will take a pic. Its a simple stupid thing that I am missing.

    CRF 230 - Clutch

    So I am replacing the clutch and and am putting the side case back on. When I hook up the cable and squeeze the lever, its all play. What am I doing wrong.

    Anyone only ride/own pitbikes?

    I would say 2006-2009 We had 4 110's, 1-50. during that time my kids were on 85's and below racing MX. 2008 older son moved up to a 250F(brand new), That bike cost me and my kids my marriage. It costs so much to repair. During the yr or 2 all the mini's were sold now we have only 1 KLX110. In North Texas the mini scene died yrs ago. I use it as a pit bike now and really as a "pit bike"
