2009 Honda CRF150RB Expert
The award-winning CRF150R and big-wheel CRF150RB Expert pack genuine high-performance four-stroke power into mini racers. They feature Unicam engines, race-ready suspension and track-designed chassis for truly groundbreaking performance.
New for 2009
· New Black color (2009 special color†).
· High-Performance Unicam® cylinder head design (see Technology Section)
· Lightweight, compact, internal auto decompression and handlebar-mounted hot-start system provide easy starting, hot or cold.
· Compact, lightweight engine assembly weighs only 43.6 pounds.
· Crankshaft is made of high-strength, low-carbon steel with carburized main journals for maximum durability at sustained high-rpm operation.
· Forged 11.7:1-compression slipper piston and rings are lighter than a conventional design, revving quickly while maintaining excellent cylinder sealing and high-rpm power.
· Double-carburized connecting rod utilizes a big-end needle bearing for maximum high-rpm performance and durability.
· Nikasil cylinder lining is lightweight and provides cooler operation for extended engine life.
· Press-fitted aluminum spark plug pipe fits between the two exhaust rocker arms, further contributing to compact cylinder-head design.
· 32mm Keihin FCR carburetor features four rollers on the flat slide, resulting in very light throttle effort, smooth operation, crisp throttle response and excellent rideability.
· Carburetor features a throttle position sensor (TPS) that helps maintain a linear throttle response throughout the range.
· Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a cool supply of oil to the clutch, eliminates potential clutch and transmission material contamination of the engine oil, reduces the amount of circulating oil and permits the use of a smaller oil pump.
· Exhaust system uses a lightweight stainless exhaust header and repackable aluminum muffler.
· Vertically split crankcases feature a built-in oil pump, reducing weight compared to a conventional design.
· Dual radiators feature a refined core area for improved heat dissipation compared to conventional dual-radiator design.
· Gear-driven balancer reduces vibration and drives the water pump. A six-disc clutch provides the surface area necessary to handle the engine’s impressive torque while carefully matched clutch springs provide a light feel at the lever.
· Durable close-ratio five-speed transmission.
· Front and rear suspension settings unique to the CRF®150R deliver ideal bump-absorption characteristics.
· Handlebar bend optimizes rider position and comfort.
· Lightweight, high-tensile steel frame with large-diameter frame tubing and cross-member provides excellent turning performance and straight-line tracking.
· Box-section aluminum swingarm is lightweight and rigid.
· Removable subframe is strong and durable.
· 37mm leading-axle inverted Showa cartridge front fork features friction-reducing design to improve compression and rebound control.
· The fork offers adjustable compression and rebound settings.
· Wide-section aluminum top and bottom triple-clamps position fork tubes far apart for good turning and control.
· Tapered-roller steering-head bearings for durability.
· Pro-Link® Rear Suspension (see Technology Section)
· Strong, lightweight wheels are durable and minimize unsprung weight.
· Lightweight front and rear disc brakes with high-performance pads offer powerful, precise braking.
· Stout 15mm front and 17mm rear axles incorporate a surface-treatment for added strength and durability.
· Large-capacity airbox and reusable two-stage foam air filter.
· Lightweight plastic body components (radiator shroud, sidecovers, rear fender, seat base, fuel tank, front fender and front number plate) offer a slim, aggressive style.
· Seat-cushion foam follows the shape of the fuel tank, providing a smooth transition to increase rider mobility and comfort.
· Non-slip seat cover for increased rider control.
· High-quality Dunlop tires.
· HRC works-type rear-brake system integrates the rear master cylinder and fluid reservoir, eliminating the separate rear master-cylinder reservoir and hose.
· Adjustable front-brake lever.
· Stainless-steel clutch cable for long life and improved feel and action.
· Works-type handlebar grips add to rider comfort.
· When you buy a new Honda Powersports Product, you may be eligible to receive a complimentary one year membership in the Honda Riders Club of America, which includes an exclusive Members-only magazine, rider training benefits, access to the Members-only Clubhouse website and much more. Some limitations apply. For more information on the HRCA, log on to hrca.honda.com.
