    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...

    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've seen the instructions...

    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...

    Hi - new member here... I bought my 2000 Rebel 250 used last year with less than 1000 mi. on her, and overhalued the top end in July '07. Lately she has begun making a 'rubbing' or 'chafing' noise when I'm engine braking. It seems to come from the left side, so I'm guessing it's the...
