CRF 230 Ultimate set ups.

I am getting a CRF 230 (L I think, the non ADR one) tomorrow, and was wondering if any one has any useful mods for the bike.

I will put bigger springs and heavier fork oil in, remove the air box lid and exhaust baffle.........any more you can recommend?

I had heavier springs put in the forks and re-valved (standard fork oil), and the rear shock modified so it could be rebuilt. Baffle removed too.

Just the suspension done alone is the best mod!! Bike felt 110% better!!

What did they do to the shock Miranda? I read they can't be moded, but there is an after market one you can buy.

Just basically put in a valve so you can re-gas it. Keg got someone to do it for me.

A shock out of an older XR650 will fit straight in the 230's...apparently...as they don't have the gas cylinder on the side.

L would be the ADR model, F would be the off road model I think.

Remove exhaust baffle (or better still fit a decent pipe).

Remove intake restrictor from airbox.

Then you can fit one of the best mods is straight from your local Honda dealer, buy these for the carby:

- part number 16012-KPS-921, CRF230F Full Power Needle (run on the middle clip as a start point)

- part number 99113-GHB-1320, #132 Main Jet

Only draw back with fitting these is that the bike will need longer to warm up with the choke before it will run crisp, but well worth that slight inconvenience.

Stay completely away from this web site - Products or this page from it as well Bike, they will only cost you money.

See here for more hints on the set up look through all the pages from the menu at the top of the page.

A fork brace may be worthwhile as wel, if you can get hold of Summers Racing Components, or get one from here, they also have triple clamps.

More stuff here and here

Note: I have seen on XRs Only that they state that the (american) L version actually has a different frame than the CRF230F and not everything fits straight on, might be worth checking if the same applies to Aus models.

Thanks ladies. I have had a look at Rick Ramsey as I use him a bit for my 250x, thanks Dennis.

Does anyone know of a company in Aus that does a rear rack for them, I can only seem to find US ones?
