  1. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    Hey everybody, long time reader - first time poster. Just a quick question: I've been having trouble with my choke/enricher not doing anything, seemed to be stuck open since the engine was running rich. Cable and plunger seem to work just fine. Pulled the carb for a clean & rebuild but noticed...
  2. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    Hello. I recently purchased my first motorcycle its a 2012 CMX250 with about 3100 miles on it. The previous owner claims it was only ridden for one season. So far I've ridden it about 100 miles and riding wise everything seems to be fine other than the learning curve. There are some issues which...

    Hey I have a 2008 Rebel and my carb is leaking fuel and I wanted to do a carb rebuild. I tried searching the web for some rebuild kits (gasket and float needle), but I cannot seem to find one for my year. Unfortunately, the rebuild kits that I'm finding are for rebels up to '06. Do you think...

    So I've gotten pretty far since I last posted about my 85' Rebel. Last night I took out the (PITA) air box an put on a pretty cone filter. Now that I've done that, what am I supposed to do with the tube coming out of the engine, and is there still supposed to be a puke tube? Also, there are some...

    So I have a similar situation to this one: http://www.hondarebelforum.com/f76/removing-carb-from-bike-12720.html except I got the rubber boot off the back, no problem. Nothing is connected to the carb at all except...I think it's sealed to the engine. Or actually to the flange that connects it...

    I have a honda Rebel 250 with about 6,3 00 original miles. I am the 3rd owner and the first owner let sit for like a year. The 2nd owner, who I bought it from, got it running (not very well) and never did any maintenance except the occasional oil change. Well, I've had her for about a month...

    I just bought a 2007 rebel with 400 miles on it. It sat in a garage for 4 years and when i bought it, it didn't run. So i rebuilt the carb - cleaned it with carb cleaner, let it soak in sea foam for 2 days, replaced o-rings and the gasket. the diaphrams look good. I read all the posts on here...

    Hi everybody, About four days back i got my self a Honda CM250, but it is called L.A Custom 250 where i live. I don't know why, but it's bit different overall from the actual CM250. I will post a photo. ( at least that's what they say ). It was not in the super good shape when it comes to...

  12. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    I have a 1987 Rebel 250. I brought it to a local repair shop that was recommended to me by other riders. The bike had sat for a long time, so it needed a complete go-through. I've only driven the bike once, which was from my house to the shop. When they attempted to pull the carb apart to clean...

    My 85 Honda rebel has been coughing upon acceleration, stalled out and the engine smokes a bit. She starts up fine. Does this sound like a carb that just needs to be cleaned? Thanks!
