Newbie with an '09

Hi! Been lurking a bit and thought I'd join up. I picked up my first motorcycle, an 09 Rebel in need of some TLC, a month ago and I've been enjoying every moment since. This forum's been a nice reference for some of that TLC

Welcome to the forum. You purchased a second generation Rebel. 250cc or 450cc?

250. I thought the 450 had been nixed way before 2009.

Yes, the 450 was just made for two years, 1986 and 1987.

yo and I hope you enjoy you 09 Reb. Rebels have been very dependable for many, many years...
On balance there are very few problems with them provided servicing is done routinely...With no oil filter, I change my oil every thousand miles.

Servicing was definitely not done routinely on this specimen. I've been doing my best to improve that situation, it's so much fun to spend a saturday tinkering on it and have it come out running much better than before
