Here's a pic of my BBR skidplate (sorry, it's a bit muddy):







It's made for an F model, not an L, so it required some grinding and the mounting brackets had to be custom machined. I was lucky and knew someone that could make the brackets for me for free. You can also see the XR's Only footpegs in the pic.

And here's my XR's Only sprocket cover (also available in silver):




An finally, here's a side shot of the whole bike:

thanks for the pics, yes you are right the skid plate looks great, I also like it better then the one from XR, the problem, I do not have anyone who could help me to make the brackets, so I am not sure what to do. Don't they sell a skid plate which fits the CRF230L by now?

I just got my XR's Only muffler and the block off kit and it makes a real huge difference, very powerful the bike now. I can see that you still have the emission junk on your bike.

Yeh, I'm in CA, so I'll probably keep the emissions stuff even though it's ugly. Haven't decided on an exhaust yet--thinking FMF at this point. You could probably fab up some other kind of brackets for the skidplate--maybe using hose clamps, conduit clamps, or something similar. I haven't found another skidplate for the L besides the one that XR's Only sells. I think the XR230 has been out in Japan for a while though, and as far as I know it's the same bike as the L, so you might be able to find an XR230 skidplate somewhere (international).

is there any other reason to take off the emissions stuff other than looks?

Weight, but then again, it's probably not that heavy. From what I've read, there doesn't seem to be any performance gain from removing it.

Thought I'd add another pic.




Post up pics if you've got 'em. Would like to get ideas for other mods, and action shots are great too...

XR's Only. They have a few accessories for the 230L. The rack works great.

Welcome Chuck289

I took delivery of a CRF230L myself last week. I've been riding an XT225, but got tired of the noise. This Honda is QUIET. I like the looks of your Cargo Tail Bag. I think I'll order one of those to use while waiting for Turbo City's Borrego Rack to become available. That is what I used on the XT225 and I really liked it. The Turbo City gent's email to me stated that they hope to have a CRF230L model available soon.

What's hanging under the left side your tail bag? Is that part of the bag or something else?

Yah, its part of the bag. Its just the 2 flaps on either side that are supposed to fold under the bag. Its to fold up the bunjees in for when you want to carry the bag with you. The bag might mount better on some sort of cargo rack, I just have it sitting on the fender. Its a pretty nice bag, expandable to be able to fit a full face helmet.
