    Engine Swap

    by bowser613 » Fri Jun 17, 2016 4:01 pm

    I am hoping to swap a 250r engine into my 230f frame. Is this possible, or does anyone have any hints?

    The 250R engine would be too much for the 230F suspension to cope with. The 230F frame and plastics were never designed with radiators in mind either.
    It is not something I would recommend.
    So go either 250 or 230 as complete bikes.

    It starts,it runs,it gets to where all CRFs can get to without the valve or valve plate dramas
