  1. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Good afternoon rebel folks! So I decided to do some upgrades with the rebel lighting. I started with the headlights, and everything went smoothly. It was a H4 LED "light blub". So..me being me, I decided to go ahead with upgrading the rear light system. The rear brake light install went smooth...
  2. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    I just bought this bike and have done a couple of basic maintenance jobs on it (carb clean, fuel tank clean). I'm now trying to address the lights. None of the turn signal lights illuminate at all, and neither does the turn signal indicator under the speedometer. The brake light also does not...
  3. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hi all, As a newb to the forum and the bike (1985 Rebel 250) and mechanical/electrical work I have been having trouble finding exactly the info I need although I have found a ton of info here that has helped me get to this point. This is about my flashers not working. I think I wired with too...

    Hey guys, I bought some aftermarket turnsignals to put on my 86 rebel, but the mounting bolt is about 1/2 an inch shorter than the originals and won't go through the saddle bag bracket and the fender. I was thinking of mounting them on the license plate bracket. Thoughts?
  5. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hey Guys, I am doing a bobber fashion of my rebel. I removed the front turn signals and wish to to keep the back ones. But after doing all this the back turn signals just stay solid and won't blink. I was just wondering if anyone has done this or had any idea as to how I could fix this problem...
  6. Cool Mods, Detailing & Appearance
    Hi all, I'd like to get rid of those clunky-looking stock rear turn indicators that my '09 has. Can someone recommend some good "plug-and-play" options...maybe something in a nice bullet design? Kuryakyn maybe?? I've read that if I change to LED, I need to change the flasher unit to an...

    Does anyone have a recommendation on how to upgrade the turn signals on a 450? I'm looking to move the signals to the forks and I would like to replace the stock lights with some brighter LED lights if possible. I have measured the forks at 37mm. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

THEN>>> Out on a ride last week and realized my turn signals stopped working. Left signal makes the left blinker go dark, right makes right go dark, opposite sides still...

    Just bought an '86 CMX450--taillight/brake light weren't working. We replaced old bulbs with standard 1157's (before checking out this site). Ok, fine. Washed and waxed bike. Suddenly turn signals now only stay "on." After checking out some threads here, I don't know if I got water somewhere I...
  10. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    I have been working on an 86 250. The turn signals that where on the bike when I purchased it worked but where installed poorly and of very low quality. Being excited about customizing my first bike I ordered some cool looking bullet turn signals and a reproduction Miller/Vincent brake light...
