    CRF230 Supermoto Track Bike Upgrade

    Frank's email said I have a choice between the bolt-on 30mm with stock cables/intake/boot for $350, or 32mm which includes 'throttle (I assume cable?) / intake manifold /intake boot for $500. I also asked about the powerings exhaust and he said $125, though I am leaning towards the pro-circuit full system for $250.

    This is helpful as I appreciate my buddy spending the time to help me out with this project, so to have a 'bolt-on and jet' option is the way I need to go. Spending $350 for the EO carb/intake boot setup gave me some sticker shock, but it seems new XR250 carbs alone are about $265-300. I'm sure the other carb options would work as well or better, but at this point, I'm not really racing anymore, mostly just track days on pavement or dirt TT track. I am whiskey throttle (or close to it) most of the way around the cart tracks, so I'm sure the piston, cam, carb, porting and exhaust mods should make a big difference.

    I did pick up some valve springs from web. I believe Athena advertises an (optimistic) 11.9:1 for their 67mm. The PWK is another carb I am looking at, but Frank at EO recommends their 30mm (I assume XR250 carb?) with intake for $350.

    Thanks guys for the info. When I initially called Web I explained my use and was interested in the 89a, but the person helping me highly recommended the 282 so I went with their pick. After reading your responses today at work I was going to call them at lunch to hold off on the cam, however, they called me shortly thereafter and said my cam was completed (much earlier than I thought). Web seemed easy to deal with...maybe they would be willing to swap it out for me if I pay shipping. Meanwhile, I will email Frank about a cam and watch for updates on Greenhumans. At this point the project is delayed as the Athena kit is out of stock everywhere. Haven't ridden it since November so looking forward to getting it back together!
  5. My 230f is primarily used for Supermoto on cart tracks, and occasionally tt track/dirt. I am in the process of an upgrade while the motor is apart for a transmission issue. A buddy who is a mechanic is helping me with the project. Here is a rundown of the plan: - Athena 67mm Cylinder/Piston kit (currently stock) - Web cam 282 (per Web's recommendation for mid/top end) - Head will be ported at shop my buddy recommends - still deciding on carb, but considering Engines Only 30mm carb/intake setup (currently stock Jetted 120 main, no snorkle) - Still deciding on exhaust, but leaning towards Pro Circuit Full System (currently stock/no baffle) - CDI Box? (currently stock) Anything I am missing? Appreciate any thoughts on the project. Thanks Mixxer and btr for PM help. Thanks! Carlo

    D.I.D 520 ERT2 Series Exclusive Racing Chain

    Not as light as a custom 428 setup, but this is less money, still low friction, and light weight. Very little chain stretch. Extra F/R sprockets are also more available, so it is easier to have a selection for different tracks. Also allows easy wheel changes for flat track when used for double duty...

    EBC Oversized Brake Rotor Kit

    For repeated braking of SuperMoto this is much easier on the hand, especially after a long track day or race weekend. Combine with quality EBC or Galfer pads, braided line and Motul RBF race fluid for good feel without fading. Note that this setup is not as forgiving as stock so use smooth modulation...grab a handful with this and you could end up on your ear...

    Fun play bike in the dirt. Heavy and suspension is very limited but the torquey motor is forgiving and a blast for casual riding. For SuperMoto track days or mini class racing, corner speed is your friend. The rear drum brake is also limited, and will permanently discolor under heavy use because of heat buildup, but mods can be done to help cool the hub. Even with the limitations, the 230 is a lot of fun, and, on a tight trail or kart track, can be surprisingly quick.
