  1. The manual says to check valves every 600 miles. I try to be diligent about maintenance but in this case there was a slight... lapse... and there were 3700 miles on the clock. Oops. Anyway I checked and adjusted. Highly recommend the Bikers Choice tool. Details and pix here: http://bit.ly/2Rp70Kc How often do people check their valves and what do you find in terms of gaps?
  2. Finally figured out that fork Seal Savers don't solve a problem I have. On the other hand, they don't protect against a problem I do have (stanchion impact protection) and cause a new problem (stanchion grinding right in the seal zone). Pic here illustrates the issue: http://bit.ly/2VLHdum Once again, BTR made a few comments that made me start thinking... why am I using these things? Done with them. Back to conventional boots.
  3. I am wanting to change my gearing on my 2015 Honda CRF-230F. It is stock with the 13-50 sprockets. I did the jetting using a 120 main, 45 slow, 03-05 needle on 4th clip, CRFs Only fuel screw airbox top removal and a DG R Series round slip on exhaust. That helped a lot and really made a difference. Now I need to figure out the best gearing. I ride mostly on single track trails and a few logging roads in the mountains of North Carolina. There are plenty of hill climbs, stream crossings, off camber trails, mud holes, logs and rocks. I use 2nd gear the most with the stock gearing. I can sometimes use 3rd gear on some of the trails and rarely use 4th, 5th, or 6th gears unless I am on open logging roads or dirt roads. I have thought about going to a larger rear sprocket like 13-51, 13-52 or 13-53 gearing so I can use 3rd gear more. I also would like to be able to lift the front wheel easier going over obstacles and doing wheelies. Is there any clearance problems with the chain guide using larger rear sprockets? I know a 12T front is cheaper and easier to change, but I think it might be too low and also I know it does cause more wear on the chain. I usually just take off in 2nd gear now with the stock 13-50 gearing. 1st gear very low and is only good for trials type riding, real technical trails, very steep hills and riding up rocky mountain streams. I also thought about trying a 14T or 15T front with the 50T rear, I read online that some people recommend to do that and really liked the performance. Then I could use 1st and 2nd gear and not have to shift as much. I am really confused on the best set up for my CRF-230F, any help, opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated. I did the jetting using a 120 main, 45 slow, 03-05 needle on 4th clip, CRFs Only fuel screw airbox top removal and a DG R Series round slip on exhaust. That helped a lot and really made a difference. I put a set of Michelin S12 XC tires on it. Now I just need to figure out gearing. Then I will start on improving the suspension next. I really like this Honda CRF-230F, it reminds me a lot of my 1973 Honda XR-75 I had when I was a kid, it is just a bigger version.
  4. Going to be looking at ordering a camshaft for my 230, had my heart set on an ST1.5. Does anybody know if Terry Miller is back and responsive?
  5. Hello everyone, I recently dual sported my 2003 230f. I have the tusk universal kit and it’s been working great. A while before I got the kit I installed a polisport headlight, but very rarely used it. After trying to ride the bike at night I am realizing how poor the light output is for this headlight. I have not done anything to the stator on the bike (which I believe stock is 65w) so I am wondering if the 35w light combined with the dualsport kit is pulling too much power? I’m thinking the light is just a poor quality unit. The dualsport kit is all led, so it shouldn’t draw much. I also have a brand new battery with only a few runs. Does anyone know of an led bulb for this headlight assembly? I’ve searched but couldn’t find a replacement bulb. Below is the link to the light. Thank you. https://www.motosport.com/product/?adpos=1o1&cc=us&creative=281128749095&device=m&gclid=CjwKCAiAyfvhBRBsEiwAe2t_i4qc2K4Ut07Hpjin4aZ0agzsZA1VHvf0E-WKd1AllOVMqO3Ge_eITBoCXigQAvD_BwE&key=Polisport-MMX-Headlight&matchtype=&mrkgadid=3301756201&mrkgcl=500&network=g&product_id=PLS001I-X001-Y001&psreferrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F&pssource=true&rkg_id=0&segment=badger
  6. Saw a local ad selling a 2008 CRF230L for $675. He says bike was running great before he put it in storage a few years ago, now it just won't start. Ad says the battery holds a charge, electric start didn't turn bike over, and push start did turn the bike over but didn't start it. I'm a newb, so i'm thinking this could be a good starter bike. This could be a simple fix. Worse case scenario...aren't the parts worth at least what he's asking? Any incite would be appreciated, thanks! - EGun
