First time motorcycle owner needs help!!

Hi all, I have purchased my first bike today which is a 1985 honda rebel 250 so I can practice riding. I already broke something and I have no clue what the part is!! I was stomping the crap outta my gear shifter to get it to go into neutral and this happened.... I attached a pic, can anyone link me to this part?

Yep, that is your shift lever and although it looks to still be connected to the rod that runs back to the tranny on the rear of the lever, you stomped off its connection point on the frame. I can't tell from the photo whether you lost the connecting bolt and nut, or whether the metal snapped. You may need to have it welded or find a replacement part. There are other options and I'm sure other's will weigh in. It is frustrating trying to find neutral sometimes, but I guess you figured out that stomping on the shift lever isn't going to help. You just have to be patient. Good luck!

Thank you, I have the same bike as you except mines an '85. From looking at the part I snapped, it looks like it also holds on the kickstand and the shifter with 2 10mm bolts. Hoping I can find this part as I can't weld!!

You can call Jack's, he sells used parts that are not on his web site. You'll have to call him though.

Welcome. You should never need to stomp on the shifter. See this post for how to lubricate the linkage. https://www.hondarebelforum.com/f12/...lp-122469.html

My mistake on the stomping part! It sucks, and I thought this part would be a little easier to find, but it turns out, maybe not...

I could be wrong, but it looks like a PO (previous owner) welded it. That part from any 1985-87 CMX250 will fit.

Here's some used ones. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1985-85-HON...UAAOSw9RtdZvWB

Both examples shown in eBay sales have bent "BOLT, TIE ROD90065-KR3-000 either one will need to be straitened

My 87 came to me with a bent tie rod bolt.. couldn't shift the dang thing to save my soul... after straitening, I welded a rod to reinforce mine..
