Hi folks,
New crf230l owner here. Picked up a 2011 with 645 miles on it about a month ago. Great little bike that I use about 80% trails. I have it on the highway occasionally and with my 225lb frame and with a hill or headwind, its definitely underpowered but that's ok, since I ride the highway for only very short stints to get to or from a trail. Love how lightweight this thing is. No problem to pull it out of the mud or turn it around on the tightest trails. Really impressed with the gas milage too. Getting about 118 miles on the tank before hitting reserve. The only things I'm planning on doing to it is getting rid of the stock trailwing tires and putting a set of kenda 760's on it......and I'm going to try a 14 tooth front sprocket to see if it lowers the revs a bit at high speed and makes 1st gear a bit longer. Here's a few pics:
