    Just happened to notice my left side handlebar bracket is cracked. Someone must have torqued the heck out of it before I got this bike. The OEM part number is: 53172-MJ6-000 I’ve googled the part number and pretty much everything shows as temporarily unavailable, however, the photos of the...

    Hi all! First time posting so I'll give you all the facts. I have an 1983 CM 250 C with 30,000km. Belt-driven model. Had low compression so I got the piston rings replaced and valves done at a head machining shop. When I brought the engine home and put her back in the bike everything seemed...

    So I bought an 01 Rebel 250 and the clutch went out on it. I replaced the clutch but now when I put it into gear it violently shuts off. This is my first bike and I really don't know what it is I might've done wrong. I tried adjusting the cable, both up top on the handle and down by the clutch...

    I have been researching the clutch changing procedures on you tube and other websites, and no one can answer my most important questions.. Is it possible for me to buy a generic clutch kit, or does it have to be the honda brand? Also, what about my gasket? Is it one I can build with a gasket...

    I am working on replacing the clutch friction plates, but having a hard time to remove the clutch nut. I have tried the putting the bike in gear and applied the brake method or knocking it off using a screwdriver, but no success. is there anything I am missing?

    I have an 06 Honda Rebel 250. I'm having clutch issues when I let the clutch lever all the way out, the engine is not getting power. Meaning the clutch is not engaging the engine. My question is could an oil with too high of a viscosity grade cause the clutch to slip? Even overtime is this a...

    Does anybody know the torque specs on the bolts tensioning the lifter plate? My clymer manual is indescriptive only stating that the bolts must be tightened in a criss-cross pattern. I have an '86 rebel cmx450c.

    I just got my first bike, a 86 Rebel 250c, a week ago. I took it home did some minor tune ups (oil, plugs, battery) but then I noticed the clutch lever and throttle are on the same side of the handlebars. I told a friend of mine and he was surprised and confused. I thought about just taking the...

  10. Gears, Sprockets & Chains
    Recently the weather has taken a turn for the better (60's at night) and I was thinking my bike would get a little extra kick to it, but the other night I was riding on the highway and when I had it in 5th and gave it the last quarter turn on the throttle to get it from 70 to 75 mph the rpms...

    Ok I'll start from the beginning. I bought my bike 3-4 days ago. Have drove it all 4 days, yesterday it would cut off when I slowed down to turn but that stopped after I got about 3 miles down the road and decided to turn around (go figure, story of my life) so I got home and checked the oil...
  12. Gears, Sprockets & Chains
    so just like the title says, i take off and give it just a little gas it goes slowly so i pull back and give it more and the higher the rpms the less power i have. little background on my rebel. 2008, 5900 miles, starts first shot everytime, fresh oil change, spark plugs, air filter, carb. clean...

    i was riding back home on a long stretch of road when my bike started losing more and more power untill my top speed was 25 mph. after pulling over and trying to accelerate i came to the conclusion that my clutch cable might need adjusting due to the fact that the same thing happened to this...

    A couple weeks ago when accelerating from a stoplight, I got a short slippage then the bike accelerated normally. At first I thought I'd just spun on some oil drippings or a small ice patch (it's cold here); but after it did it a few more times in the following days, I knew it had to be the...

    I bought a used 2006 rebel with 3500 miles on it. I generally ride 5 miles to work and back, topping out at 55mph. Whenever I ride for more than 20 minutes, or over 60mph, I get stuck in 5th gear. I pull the handle with all my might, but it simply will not depress. The clutch handle is normally...

  17. Rebel Reading Room (FAQs)
    My clutch cable snapped right at the lever base. Cable is still there dangling but not connected to the base anymore. It's still in the lever. Just got my 85 Rebel so still kinda new. I was hoping this is an easy fix that I could do myself. Thanks!
