    I have a 1985 Honda Rebel CMX250C that had bad handlebar switches so I bought second gen ones, problem is that the connecters for the first gen are 6 pin and the second gen have 8 pin and I need to rewire them to fit into the first gen connecters, how do I do this?

    I know this has been asked here before, but the answers and links seemed a little outdated. Anyone know if there's a place to buy new Rebel engines? looking for the standard 234cc (250) and I'd like to have a clean slate. I can't seem to find anything besides 40y/o ones on ebay with 100k wanting...

    Buying an 86 450 with 200 miles on it in mint condition. I’m a new rider with some experience. It’s not going to be my main form or transportation but I do plan on racking up a ton of miles.

    I have a 2017 Honda Rebel CMX 300, I have a stock fender bought online but I'm missing the left and right mounting brackets for the fender. If there is anyone that put a fender eliminator or something of the sort that has the parts? If you do, please send me a message.

    Hey guys! So I've had my 85 Honda Rebel since December and about last week, she started struggling to get out of first gear. It's not that I don't know how to start off in first gear. I had done everything as usual and the moment the clutch engaged, she lurched and stalled. Now, once I feel the...

    Hello all and welcome, I've been having problems with my 125 rebel. The engine bogs under throttle, it runs better when the rubber air intake is taken off the airbox. I have replaced the air filter but that did not aid it. The carb has been ultrasonicly cleaned and the float needle is in great...

    Picked up my first bike not too long ago and need some advice. Grabbed an 08 off craigslist with 190 miles on the clock and seemed to have been well taken care of during those years it sat. In a few months I've got her up to 8xx miles and she's been running great up until about a week ago when I...

    I am somewhat of a new member and I'm happy to see all these Rebel fans! (I used to be a crotch rocket rider in the late 90s and early 00s) I just recently got back into riding because not only did I feel the calling, but also just got sick and tired of being a slave to gas. Check out my rebel...

    It's been a while since I've checked in. Did someone say snow? I'm so glad that during the last 10 days of 60-ish degree weather I went riding. As of this morning it's 20º here in SE Oklahoma, and that's too chilly for me. Call me a woos, that's just a bit below my comfort level. Here's a few...

    I've already put down the deposit at my local motorcycle dealer for my rebel, since they are in such high demand. My deposit can go towards any bike, so I want to make sure this is the one for me. I recently went to a scooter store with my sister. They tried to talk me out of getting a...
