It means the seller doesn't understand Honda model nomenclature. The Rebel 250, CMX250, CMX250C, and CMX250C A are one and the same for non-California North American bikes. The full model number for California Rebels is CMX250C AC.
That gasket set should also fit the 2000-2016 Rebel 250 (CMX250C A and CMX250C AC) model years.
No worries. I just filed the dowel pin holes wider to fit over dowel pins. Seemed to work fine and got it all back together. Started and ran fine. Sputters a lil but plugs are from 1985. So hopefully I can get new ones and fix the problem. Then again it may just need to be ran. But am able to ride it now so yay. Thanks for all the help.
I know that naming letters on motorcycles have specific meanings. Lately I've been pondering the lettering scheme of the Honda CMX & it's meaning?
Does C= classic M= motorcycle X= something extra.
C generally means classic
I am aware that the X generally just means something added from previous versions.
Interesting question. My research indicates that apparently Honda has never explained its Rebel nomenclature, so I doubt there is anything definitive about it. The Rebel is a direct descendent of the CM model series, so your supposition about the X in its name could be correct.
