Ok so i was able to acquire a known working cdi for relatively cheap. I don't have the time at the moment to wire it up but tomorrow I will. As soon as I have it hooked up I will let you know how it goes. So to recap I have a 2000 rebel stator in my 83 cm250 and the flywheel has thinner magnets installed so the stator can fit. Next step is to wire up a 2nd gen cdi (from a 2003 rebel) to the harness and if all goes well, i won't die.... (joking). Wish me luck!

Good luck.
I too learned a bit more about winding a stator..
if it ever comes to it, I'll closely observe which direction the windings are wound

I have a different question about your cm250 if you don't mind? That has a center stand does it not? Do you think it'll fit a rebel?
I've been watching this thread with much curiosity. I hope all goes well with your repairs.

Yes it does have a center stand, but to be perfectly honest I do not know if it would be a direct fit. Im sure with a little fabrication you could get it to fit if it doesnt at first but that goes without saying. and I dont know if its just my bike or if all the cm250s are like mine but to get it on that stand is a huge pain. twice ive caught my foot between the center and side stand when getting it on the center.

The center stand will fit, but you need a way to attach it to the Rebel.

Raising the side stand before putting the bike on the center stand will get it out of the way, but shouldn't be needed when using proper technique. How to get a motorcycle on and off the centerstand - YouTube

well i am sorry to disapoint everyone that was a part of this, but today I went to donate plasma and while i was out someone broke into the garage and stole the bike, my tools, and anything else of value. so right now im back to square -1. only thing my cameras saw was a truck with no license plate and some people wearing hoodies

It wasn't you that gave the disappointment.
So sorry! This world is getting worse everyday.
Police have any ideas or hopes for recovery?
Someone was obviously watching close by. Check your camera for a few days prior. You may have caught the criminals on camera casing your home previous to this.
I know my brother did with his cameras. He posted their likeness on the outside of his house. The man was looking straight at the camera.

I have blink cameras so they only get about a minute at a time. I have an idea of who it could be but it's not like I live in the safest neighborhood to begin with... so who knows, maybe they can't fix the bike and they leave it somewhere. Doubt it. But wishful thinking. Thanks again everyone

Well good news and bad news. Bad news is bike was recovered. Not by police but found on the side of the road. Not sure what they did aside from ruin my day but almost everything seems intact besides the seat missing. Luckily I got a spare. Now for the good news. I was able to get some money together from a side job to buy the parts I actually need for the dang thing. Keep a look out for a page called " there is no I in parallelogram" just kidding itll be called "someguys cm250"

Glad to hear you got it back, just a shame that they took it in the 1st place, Along with your tools.Focus on the positive things in life!
Looking forward to more posts about the fixes.
I just don't understand why it's bad news that you got the bike back?

The bad news could be if the bike was insured, he might get more from a claim than he has invested in it. But since it was recovered, that's not an option. Either way, glad you got it back.
