  1. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    2009 Honda rebel 250. I just bought a new taillight/brake light and noticed that my brake light does not get brighter when I step on the rear brake or when the front brake lever is engaged. I checked the switches (both seem to be fine). Could this be a wire issue (the green with yellow stripe)...
  2. Wrenching - General Discussions & Tech Talk
    Picture I just got my rebel a few weeks ago and the front brakes have been squeaky, so today I tried to take the caliper off and clean them. I couldn't get the screws off though.

  6. Honda Rebel Room
    I just moved my bike across state lines by cramming it in the back of a truck with a hard top, in order to do so I had to tilt my handlebars dramatically and leave them down for 8 hours. Now the bike runs fine but the brakes are completely unresponsive. I'm going to bleed the brakes tomorrow...
