  1. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hey forum, I’m nee here and new to riding. I’ve recently purchased a rebel 250 2013 that I’ve been converting into a bobber, I’ve removed all the stock tail and brake lights and turn signals and I purchased a pair of new rear turn signals from bobbercycle that I’ve not been able to get working...
  2. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    I bought a 1985 rebel 250 earlier this week. It wasn’t running... so I got a super good deal on it and hoped I could fix it cheaply. I thought it was carb issues since it had great compression, but now that I’ve completely rebuilt the carbs, I’ve discovered that it also has some serious...
  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...
  4. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hey y'all I am rebuilding my first bike and am hell bent on leather, for better or worse, to going through the whole process. My question: Is it possible to use a different wiring harness from a later model Rebel? How challenging will this be to modify it? The bike I am rebuilding is an '86...

    Hey y'all! So I got pulled over cuz my taillight was out (got off with a warning, thank gawd). As I was waiting for the tow truck, I tried messing with it and turns out if you just push it down or pull it up some, the light would "reconnect" I guess. Anyone have any idea what causes this? I...
  6. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    Hey guys, I've got a 1986 Rebel 450 that I've come to learn does not have its original motor in it, but rather has a 1982 CM450E motor (& carbs) on the Rebel frame (stock airbox, fuel tank with decal, not sure what else is not original). I have a charging issue and my question is a 1986 CMX450...
  7. Wrenching - General Discussions & Tech Talk
    So today I wired in some body lights, and during the process lost the cover that hides the wires behind the headlight. Anybody know what that's called or where I can get ahold of one? It's a 2000 250. Thanks, T Edit: It's called a wiring harness cover, part of the wiring harness box. Found...

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...
  9. 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...

    It's the weirdest thing! The neutral light stays on while I'm in gear at a stop, but when I let go of the clutch, the light turns off as it should while in gear! So I'm getting this weird false neutral reading between every gear! Also while at a stop in 1st, it's still on. Any idea what this...
