Rear Rack

Anyone know if the subframe on the "F" model is the same as the "L" model? I want to buy a rear rack for the wifes commuter but I am having a hard time finding something that will work.

thanks!

crf230f luggage rack

I too am looking for a rear rack for my crf230f. check out www.cycleracks.com, they make a beefy schedule 40 steel one. it weighs 9 pounds, but i've heard its really stout. i called cycleracks and they said the L model has a different fit than the F model. different frame attachment points i guess. theres pics on the website of the rack installed on a crf230f, its powdercoated red. i'll post pics of my 2005 crf230f soon.

I am looking for a BBR suspension-raising link as well as a BBR triple-clamp (which also raises the suspension/forks) - both of which BBR has stopped making.

If you know of one (each maybe?) then pls PM me, I want these items.

Check out my 230 adventure build up thread. My crf is taking on a new personality. Adding a rally fairing, hard cases and more for my wife to do some touring with me. Should be a cool bike.

Have one for the wife unit. Shockingly great trail bike. Doesn't look that incredible on paper, but that long stoke, torque'y little motor will go up anything at any temperature or altitude (not fast though). Super tight handling, pretty light weight, ele. start and about no maintenance. Love it.

Here's my CRF 230. It's a small wheel, five speed, kick start only with a lighter flywheel and some other stuff.

Thanks for starting this thread! I currently ride a KLR 650, which I bought when I thought I was going to be more equal on/off road, but I ended up riding the roads only long enough to get to the trails. Needless to say, the KLR is a pig in the woods. No fun to pick up out of the ginormous mud puddles we get in the woods out here. So...

I just picked up a 2004 CRF230F that I'm going to turn into a dual-sport. Currently has Renthal bars, Pro Circuit T4 pipe, Acerbis Handguards. On order is a Baja Kit with LED turn signals, Ricky Stator stator, Pirelli MT21s, Trail Tech Vapor, Folding Mirrors. This is the bike as it stands today.



Let the fun begin!

I have the same combo. Klr and crf. Great do everything combo on the cheap. I'm using the tusk d/s kit with eBay headlight, hand guards and some choice parts from other locations.
