  1. Do you want to sell the stock exhuast? I’m not in dire need, butI could use i it for my stocker 150F. —L*64
  2. What kind of shape is that stock exhaust in? I could use one that isn’t beat up. I crash a lot, and mine are all dented. -L*64
  3. I was holding off because I thought a new bike was coming out. I was going to see if they were going to work on the new model that isn’t happening. Now it’s back to monkeying with the bikes I already have. And boy is moving a nightmare! —L*64
  4. Take the rear linkage apart, and clean/grease the bearings. It'll need it. Get a 150R front fender and the 4 washers. It mounts right up. If you read my CRF150F/230F homologation thread, there's alot of good info there. I also have an '05 150F that I ride the hell out of. I actually prefer it to the 230, but I race the 150/230F because it has better power obviously. I have some plans for the 150F including a 230 carb and air boot. --L*64
  5. Well! Haven’t been here in awhile due to 1) Me selling my house and moving, which was a huge pain in the @$$, and 2) I was thinking that Honda was bringing out a new bike for 2019. I’m mostly done moving, I’m functioning in my new set up, and Honda isn’t bringing out a new bike. Soooo- I guess I’ll keep working with these bikes! Stay tuned for the black ProWheel rim lace up project that’s coming up. Really thinking about the rear disc brake conversion now too. —L*64
  6. Sad to hear. I lost my beloved Missy pig last year. I’ve sold my house and moved since. I only stayed out of (Cleveland, Ohio) County so not to have a hassle over her. I’m now back in county after 15 years. I guess it’s part of having pets unfortunately. My condolences. —L*64
  7. So the bikes are back again in 2019?? Same as they were in 2017?? I guess I may be looking into that rear disc brake setup again?? I was hoping for a new bike, but I’m having a ball on the bikes I have in all honesty. -L*64
  8. Looks like fun. Was there a KLX125 up in there too? Looked like a grown man on a KX85 in the beginning? Hahahaha! --L*64
  9. It comes with three gears. The ones that will wear out when kicking a hi-comp engine. My 150F is staying stock since I did the 150/230F project, so I won't need the heavy duty gears. My bike has more than 800 hours on it, and the stock gears are still perfectly fine. --L*64
  10. Yep. I bet it is. I thought about doing my fork lowers black, and I like my bikes to LOOK nice, but it'll have to wait until I have to forks apart for maintenance. --L*64
  11. Looks good! I'd have anodized them as they're aluminum though. --L*64
  12. I have a set of Coeshow kickstart gears if you DO go this route. I want to sell them. --L*64
  13. It ain't simply just gonna mount up.... Honestly-- if you NEED Ti, then talk to Jemco or somebody that does custom pipes like that, send them your stock pipe, and let them go off of that. I just got a Yosh pipe for my own 230, it was mostly for bling. Looks well made, and it has the heat shield which is a must for me. My FAVORITE bike is my nearly showroom stock '05 150F. Jetted, modded stock suspension, baffle removed-- just run it! --L*64
  14. I like the looks of the stock bike, so I run the stock plastic, graphics, and seat cover. I am going to lace up a set of black rims to the stock hubs to add some bling. I just don't want to stray too far away from the looks of the stock plastic. You can sand the plastic and reapply the stock decals. They seem to hold up pretty well. I got some number plate graphics which look nice too. --L*64
  15. My 230 has 150F front and rear ends on it, so I'm running 16/19's which is not what you're trying to do. I looked into Excel, and they wanted to custom drill a set of rims... Then custom spokes.... Then put a hurtin' on my credit card..... NOT happening. So I called ProWheel, and they have a set of black rims available for a TTR125L, that work on a 150F also, and run the stock 150F spokes. Yes please!! I asked them about a set for the 230, and they didn't offer anything. In between the call to Excel USA, and ProWheel, I talked to Larry at BBR. Now I was only upgrading the rims to black for bling on my bike. I've been racing these bikes since 2010, and never had an issue with the stock rims. Larry said that they hadn't either, so he said he'd just send the stock rims out for black anodizing, and run decals if need be. So that's what I know about it. --L*64
