dirtydeeds- "They're a bit short on range though.
I'm in the process of building a modern version. I'm starting with a KLX140L chassis. (the big wheel version)"
What's up with that? You just got the 140, were you dissapointed with it or did you get a blown up one just to stick the KE motor into? I love our 140 & can't imagine the 100 being superior to that torquey little 140.
You asked earlier if a CRF 230 can be lowered. Deffinately YES. I'm not sure what it involves but, I hooked up with a trio of riders at the 2012 fall trail ride at Loretta Lynns & the guys wife was on one. I thought it was a CRF 150 as it was only an inch taller than my daughters KLX 140. I was shocked to see that it was the CRF 230. If I had known then that you were interested, I'd have gotten details on the lowering info. I know that's not much help but, her 230 was literally only an inch taller when parked side by side with the 140.
