  1. Yeah... I was also wondering if anyone has installed these guards... I was going to post the same question at some point!
  2. I'm 26 and bought my CRF230 this past fall. This bike does everything that I ask of it, all it asks of me is routine upkeep. None of this top end rebuild or mixing oil or tearing anything else up. Its easily modifyed and has alot of the same looks of a MX machine but costs half as much.. What else can you ask of a bike?? So far I have installed a set of stealth handguards and a works skid plate. I just plan on routine maintanence maybe upgrading the jets and exhaust... But, if it isn't broke, why bother! Eventually I would like to have an all out MX bike, but even so, I would keep the 230!
  3. You know I have been thinking about this bit of information, I think I may stick with what I got. One nice thing I think that the BBR has to offer is that I can get them in a longer length. Not sure which way I'm going
  4. Slightly, enough that it was causing the problems that you all describe. I took the shifter off and had luck straightening it. Shifts like a dream now.
  5. I'm looking at the BBR shifter right now, I've been reading the searches I've done on shifting problems... Really seems like these are common issues with the CRFs... I'll let you all know what I find in the morning
  6. Yeah I checked for the shifter rubbing against the case, I did not notice anything rubbing at all. The really curious thing about it was the bike was shifting fine for the first part of my ride today, then for whatever reason like I said it had a hickup or two. I was going to take off the tranny inspection cover and make sure that the 10 mm bolt is completely tightened on the shifter fork. Is there any possible or probable way that some serious mud or water can cause this strange problem? It is just the strangest thing that I have no problem in the lower gears, but once I get to 4,5,6 I have this intermittant issue
  7. I had an interesting issue occur on my CRF today. I was doing some simple trail riding much like I do all of the time. I haven't ever raced or beat on this bike and I don't understand why I am having this issue. The problem I am having is that when I go to upshift the shifter gets stuck momentarily in that up position before it returns to its normal place. I had this happen to me 3 times this afternoon mostly from 3rd to 4th gear. I did get into some serious mud last weekend and was wondering if that is part of my problem or is it a deeper issue. The crappy thing is that I bought the bike on Sept 1st and my warranty is out by 10 days. Any help would be appreciated
  8. I have an interesting question for you, I have searched this website and I have found setups for High Elevations and for Sea Level. I live in the Appalachians and at my house in the valley it sits at 1300ft but were I ride on top of the mountain its closer to 2800-2900ft in elevation. I was curious to which jets I should use, I don't want to make any mistake and do more damage than good. Thanks for your assistance~ Butch
  9. I know I am going to get hammered on the "Use the search button" however I couldn't find the information I was looking for. Perhaps I wasn't looking in the right place. I live in the Appalachians and at my house in the valley it sits at 1300ft but were I ride on top of the mountain its closer to 2500-2800ft in elevation. I was curious to which jets I should use, I don't want to make any mistake and ruin my bike. Thanks for the help.
