Purchased mine from Honda Pinetown.  They knew it as a CRF230 power-up kit.  Over the counter, ex stock.

Now this is the kind of dealership I like   :thumleft:
Just a pity I am up in JHB.
Here I just get blank stares...  :-\

If I may ask what did you pay for the kit?
Was it difficult to install?
What was the performance gain like?
Apologies for all the Questions but there is little first hand info out there about this mod...

Apologies for all the Questions but there is little first hand info out there about this mod...

Did the mod about 3 years ago and at that stage it cost around R430.00 As for the power gains it is essential for getting a heavier rider around.  You do need to un-cork the exhaust at the same time, and pull the "snorkel" out of the airbox.  I also tore the wire-mesh screen out of the airbox.  As for DIY install of the "power-up kit" - easy job for anyone who's handy with a screw driver. 

Just a little detail about the "Power-up Kit"  The needle and jet that they supply essentially restore the bike to its original spec.  The bike is de-tuned to conform to Californian emission's legislation, hence the plugged up exhaust and as a result they have to run it slightly leaner to compensate. 

But once the mods are done the bike is more then capable of keeping up with anything else in the tight stuff.  IMHO it's less tiring on the technical stuff than anything else I've ridden. 

Let us know how it works out for you.  Looking forward to the updates.

Thanks for the Info, Much Appreciated  :thumleft:

I have serviced the carb enough times to know it pretty well by now so I should manage then.
I'll will keep you posted on my progress and results.

Thanks Again

Phoned Sandton Honda and there is no Brian working there according the guy at motorcycle spares.
He has also never heard of these parts...  :-\

I have now sent him an e-mail with the part numbers...
We wait with baited breath...

Who is running this setup on his CRF230.
Spark arrestor out.
Airbox opened up.
120 main jet
45 pilot jet
needle 4th clip
The reason I ask, I have done this but the bike is bogging a little bit when I blib the throttle.
Otherwise it is running 100%
Who needs a road anyway?

The only thing I haven't played around with is the air screw.  Maybe to much or not enough air.
I have also fitted a 12T front sprocket last night, so I cant wait to go and ride this weekend.

What size front sprocket is standard?
