Question about 2005 Honda CRF 230 F
I've purchased a 2005 crf 230 f and found the bike was fine for a few days but then started sputtering a little in high 2nd/3rd gears...i was going towards cleaning the carb...then i remembered there is a FMF aftermarket exhaust installed. I'm thinking that with the lean condition i have with the white plug that the previous owner may not of re-jetted the carb...would this be necessary??? as I believe it would be...I tried getting hold of the guy but he is out of town for a few days. can the engine be running hotter now in this condition and can any damage occur... I know this is long winded and any insight would be greatly appreciated...thanks
Generally when installing after market performance exhaust, jetting the carb is necessary. until you get ahold of the previous owner and find out if the carb has been jetted, you can try and adjust the fuel air mixture screw and see if that helps. and like any engine especially bikes, it is possible to sieze the piston. it can be riden, but be careful of over heating. hope this helps...
