It's an eBay filter from China claiming to be OEM, so either they lied or the Asian/Aussie market filters are somehow different...I still need to pull the old one back out and compare it side to side...

That's one way of getting around the no-longer-made belts for that model.


P.S. you do realize that underneath the RK chain sticker is a belt drive sticker on your chain driven bike. :D

I create my own laughs...I've always treated the Reb as a "toy" due to its smaller nature (not just displacement, but it's physically a smaller overall object compared to many other bikes). At the...

The most effective and proven mod to getting more power out of a Rebel is jacking the gas cap up and sliding a Shadow, Magna, or Valkyrie under it. All three are direct bolt on mods.

Of noteworthy mention: the 300 & 500 models come from the factory with a raked tree (IIRC +2 trees on a 30 frame to yield 32 total) so it's going to behave differently from a conventional front...

If you want power from a 250, try finding an Aprilia RS250 (mid-90's to early aughts). It was a two stroke 90 V-twin that produced 60HP to the ground. Yes, you read that right: 60HP...almost as much...
