Dear Bob I found this link
http://crfsonly.com/reviews/engines-only/engines-only-crf230-big-bore.php

The stock 2004 Honda CRF230F is an extremely capable trail bike with surprising quickness in tight, technical terrain where mother nature says no one shall exceed 25 mph. Improvements can be made, however, and I was quick to open the air box to let the engine breathe better, slightly relieve the stock muffler to improve exhaust flow without making it noticeably louder, and of course re-jetting the carburetor accordingly, using the Honda Power-Up Jet Kit. Then I was quick to note the little engine’s incredible low-RPM torque. With the small carburetor, small diameter header pipe, and long-stroke engine, the CRF230F pulls better right off idle than some bikes twice its size! For me, this made it a great bike for playing around at observed trials, and a natural for the Trail Bike Class at trials events. The stock gearing, however, did not allow riding along at a walking pace (very necessary for trials) without significant clutch action, so I added four teeth to the rear sprocket to lower the gearing enough to allow a slower minimum riding speed. I lost some top speed, of course, but who needs 70 mph in the woods? It still does 64 MPH!
