oil leak

  1. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    So I just got an 08 Rebel 250. Bought it for 400$ because it had a significant oil leak from the front sprocket. So, after finding basically no help on the internet regarding getting the dang countershaft seal off, I went to work prying the thing out. Now that the new one is in, oil is just...

    I have oil leaking from the crankcase at the base of the cylinder block. I'm sure that I misaligned or otherwise messed up the gasket(s) where they intersect during a recent rebuild of the transmission. The leak appeared immediately. While the bike is running, a steady, slow ooze of oil comes...

    Hey, all. I'm new here, so I hope I'm following proper protocol in how I go about this. I'm having an issue with my bike that I wanted to troubleshoot here before I try to do anything.

    As of three weeks ago I became the proud owner of a "brand-new" 1987 rebel 250. I bought it from a friend who had owned it for a year, garage kept it and put roughly a 1,000 miles on it. The first owner(friend of my friend) also garage kept it and put a cool 9700 miles on it. With low miles...

    I blew the engine in my car back in November. Since I live alone I decided I didn't need a new car and decided to buy a motorcycle. Now keep in mind I'm 54 yrs old and never owned or road a motorcycle. My research led me to the Rebel. I love the classic styling and the fact it gets 70+ MPG. So...
