the CRF 230 is an amasing bike its literly indistructable its very fast for a trail bike with the 6th gera that i cant even hit because its just wy to in fast. the bikes suspention depends on rider whight if ur any where from 120-150 its a great bike any thing over that prepare 4 a rough ride becuase u will aways be bottomed out. and 2 any other CRF 230 riders out there i recoment taking that peace of baffle out of your muffler. with thiat thing in its like ur bike is breathing threw a straw!!. i took mine out in increased engine braking preformance and it soaund great I highly recoment u do that all you have 2 do is get a star screw driver and its on the side of the tip of your muffler it schould pop right out if u pull it. i also hurd that BBR makes after market springs for bothe the front and rear suspention i will be trying them out soon there 30% stiffer then stock. so if your an agressive rider like me whos 143 IBS and want 2 hit jumps GET THEM!... but htis bike is awsome overall

Hi I would like to know if the crf230f would make a good all around bike for a person around 200 pounds I havent had a dirt bike in 12 years and I know have a son that I started to teach to ride on a crf50f and I want to ride again. I have read a lot of stuff about the crf models and the price is great for a bike that size but I read it is for riders around 150 pounds. can some one email me some info please
