Just picked up an 06 honda tank 250 for my lady. The airbox is trashed. My question is could i delete the box entirely and put on a k&n conical filter?
Its dual carb so i would have to find an adapter to go from two to one. But would it have any negative affect.?

Welcome to forum . You can buy the air box and hose to suit twin carbs on Ebay they are to suit the Aussie and Asian rebels

Welcome to the forum @Jrod009

Air box is integral part of crankcase ventilation system as well as air intake filtration..
Yes it would have a negative affect
air box is engineered to preform in concert with the variable venturi vacuum piston of constant velocity (CV) carb and why the oem hole/holes are the size they are..
those that drill extra holes or remove box find carb rejet and tuning required..

duel carb Honda Rebel is rare in my sphere of the world, not something I would be hacking apart.

I'm confused, did you acquire an 06 Honda 250 or an 06 Tank 250? Your post seems to amalgamate both of those and they aren't the same thing...I can offer an accurate answer on one but not so much on the other as the Tank 250 is a Chinese clone, and they do tend to alter a few things along the way on such bikes.

Even so, considering the design from which it is cloned and assuming CV carbs are a part of that equation, it is safe to say that the airbox is going to be an integral part of decent operation.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

All power is gained in percentages. As a general rule of thumb for hotrodding bikes, one grand equals 6%.

So you dump a grand into your Rebel and you "gain" an additional 6 percent of your original 17 horsepower....

And that's pretty much why nobody makes anything. There's not even enough exhaust pressure at 233cc to go turbo.

You want more power, use it as a trade-in.

Hey Duke .. Good to see you.. I couldn't agree more. Even if parts were available, you could spend a lot of time and money trying to pull a bit more power out of a Rebel and you'd still have the fastest Rebel on the block but still pretty slow compared to almost any other bigger streetbike.

<pssst...2007 post/thread necromancy >

I almost answered the OP myself until I saw he had three posts and all of them were on that page with nine year old dates next to them.

Now if the necromancer could just cue us in as to which bike he actually has, it sounds like the clone but with no location listed in the profile it could also be an Asian/Aussie Rebel.

I don't know if it's a clone but the crank case says ?TANK" but reg says Honda. Seller said it was a rare bike known as ?tams vision". Again I bought it thinking it was an 06 rebel because that's what it was listed as. Not sure whether I can put a screw in breather in the crank case or whether I should buy a new air box and box hoses. Any help would be appreciated. I can give vin and serials if needed.

"Tank Sports 250" returns good hits CN clone that has been around
seems they build bikes up to 1400cc could be a honda with aftermarket engine..

no matter,,, a bike is a bike unless it's a trike..

I'll help when I can.. the engineering principles don't change much between manufactures.
