  1. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    The battery on my '85 rebel needs replacing and I'd like to go with a Mighty Max Battery 12V 6AH 100CCA GEL Battery but it's listed as being "for Honda 250 CMX250C Rebel 1996-2014." The specifications are the same as for my '85, but the dimensions are a little smaller. If I strap it to the box...
  2. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Just bought my first ever bike, an 08 Honda Rebel 250. Last owner barely ever road it (80 miles in 4 years.) Claimed it had a brand new battery and then we brought it by a mechanic who did a full carb clean and an oil change. They also said they gave it a safety check and said every thing looks...
  3. Equipment Rack: Backrests, Racks, Windshields, etc
    I got my Rebel 250 for about 1300, all it needed was some cosmetic work and an oil change, and right after I shook the guy’s hand, I put in an order for a right side battery cover, as the stock one was busted. $30 on eBay. Then it got lost in the mail for a month, and I gave up hope, so I...
  4. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    I bought a 1985 rebel 250 earlier this week. It wasn’t running... so I got a super good deal on it and hoped I could fix it cheaply. I thought it was carb issues since it had great compression, but now that I’ve completely rebuilt the carbs, I’ve discovered that it also has some serious...

    Hello all! Just got a Honda rebel and currently the only way to get it running is push it or roll down a hill and pop the clutch to turn over the engine. The start button seems to be dead. Apparently it had problems in the past charging the battery but when you push the button it doesnt...
  7. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    I needed to recharge my battery on my 09 Rebel 250, so I uninstalled it and had it recharged supposedly without a hitch, but when I reinstalled the battery and wired her up like I was supposed to, I still had no power at all, not even the horn was working. Any ideas???
  8. Newbie Lounge
    I just bought a used 2001 Honda Rebel 250. If I leave it sitting for a 5 days or so the bike no longer starts. The battery is fairly new and the previous owner (a friend) claims she had no problems with it. If I hook it up to a trickle charger and then use it every day then it starts fine. I do...

    I just got my '86 250 and I road it like a week ago. I went outside today to crank it up and nothing would happen. I figured out that the battery was dead so I jumped it and it ran, but I will need to get a full charge soon. Two questions 1. If you leave the kill switch in the "Engine OFF"...
  10. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    . After doing some service on the wife's Rebel, oil change, tire pressure, spark plugs, sprockets and chain, clean battery terminals and general check over. Took it on a gentle test ride. While on the road test, I noticed that at low engine rpms, I could feel the engine surging. Extended the...
  11. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hello all, I'm new to the forum and was hoping someone can help with a problem I am having with my girlfriends bike. 2005 cmx250. Something seems to be draining the battery. I can charge the battery and the bike fires right up, but if it sits just overnight, it doesn't have enough juice to...
  12. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hi, I am new here and just bought a 2001 Honda Rebel about a month ago. It rode fine for the first 20 or so miles and then I lost power. I took it to a mechanic who charged the battery and, again it ran fine for a little bit and then died. I bought a new battery and it ran good and then the...

    2005 Rebel. I put my key on today, when I turned it, I think I heard a pop, headlight when on and off. Since then, when I twist the key to on, there is NO power, anywhere. But if I push start her, she runs fine! Even at idle! I even disconnected the negative terminal on the battery and she kept...

    Hello all, I've got a situation one of you here may have had experience with and could give me some advice. I've got an 85 Rebel and every once in a while it will shut off as if the battery is dead. I'll try to turn it over and there will be nothing, neutral light won't even light up. But, the...
