    Anybody try the CRF250F?

    Hello Carboncraker, I appreciate your reply! If I could figure out how to make one California street legal, I would be at the dealer buying one.

    How is the bottom end torque?

    Cam Specs .... Why Not....

    Excellent. I had a XR400 and loved the low end torque of the motor. It would lift the front wheel even in third just by rolling on the throttle. I sold it and bought a Yamaha WR250R dual sport...total opposite! NO low end, it will not even do a roll on wheelie in first! ( I do like the bike, just don't like the lack of low end) Last year was my first riding season on my CRF230. After reading about the poor suspension, I addressed that right away and really enjoyed riding the 230 For this riding season looking for a bit more tractor feel or as Vortec says mini XR600 pulling power

    Cam Specs .... Why Not....

    Hello Adnohguy, Mods so far: California street legal 2004 CRF230F I have spent my money dialing in the suspension. 150R front end, Hagon rear shock Skid plate...Its rocky were I ride. The bike is bone stock right now but I have a box full of parts waiting to go on. Athena big bore kit PD03 pumper carb Pro Com box Twin air filter EO Power ring Picked up a used round canister BBR complete exhaust system (From my understanding I can take off the end cap and run it with the power ring or even stock insert if I wanted to go super quiet) Soon to arrive Hot cams 1059-1 un cork air box Stock gearing I just do slow speed tight trail riding. Looking for the torque feel of the XR400 I owned. I would like to be able to roll on the throttle and lift the front wheel (Did not like the of size of the 400) I am definitely opened to advice that is why I am posting. I bought most of my upgrades from opinions I received on this forum. I understand what one rider likes another might hate. Hopefully I can come up with a mild combination that will give me that low end grunt!!! Thanks

    Mixxer I took your advice regarding the Hotcams 1059-1 I was looking on Amazon and it had 1 left for $63.24...I figured it was a typo so I snapped it up. I went back to repurchase and its at $200.00 now? Anyways I am waiting on delivery of my new $63.24 camshaft! (Go figure) I value you and Rickey Racers opinions, but you two disagree on this camshaft. He says it will kill my low end torque and you say the opposite??? My motor is stock right now. Since I mainly do low speed tight trails, I need all the low end I can get and don't want to shift the power band. What can I expect from this camshaft? Thanks
  7. Yes. I think it should be included in this forum since it is of interest to CRF230 owners
  8. Plvis...tell us about this all aluminum sub frame! Please post pictures of it.

    With a new billet HotCam, do I need to purchase new rocker arms? What about valve springs? Will stock work? Thanks

    Hello Mixxer, I appreciate your advice! If the two camshafts are similar I would prefer to get the brand new billet. Is anyone on the site running this CRF150f camshaft in their 230??? Thanks.

    Hello Vortec, Who is the manufacturer of the 340/402 cam you are talking about?

    Hello Mixxer, I was thinking about buying the St 1.5 cam but it sounds like Terry is unavailable for business! I am looking for a good low end torque camshaft for trail riding. Could you please explain what the difference in the numbers mean and how do the camshafts compare to each other? Thank you

    Hello Tatau, Do you like the bike? Pro's / Con's How does it compare to the mighty 230?

    Pain & More Pain

    Mixxer, How did you mess up your back that bad?!?

    Pain & More Pain

    Hello Mixxer, Here's what work for me before I had surgery. I had three different prescriptions. My regular doctor prescribed 800mg Ibuprofen and Norco which I believe is a opiod. The surgeon prescribed Gabapentin. Believe or not the Norco had the least effect. I was in so much pain it did not even produce a buzz effect! I would not take anything before driving so i would wait until i got to work. I would get in my car for the 25 minute drive to work and the nerve pain behind my left knee and upper calf was excruciating. I would get to work and lay on my office floor for 10 minutes to calm my body after going through that pain. I would then take the Gabapentin and a half hour later taken the 800mg ibuprofen (I checked with the pharmacist and you can mix the two) the combination of the two would ease the pain considerably! Neither one on their own did very much but combined it did the trick! I would do that combination three times a day Monday thru Friday until I had my surgery. Hope that helps!
