86 and 05 rebel 250s
I have an 86 I made a bobber, went to the rebel rally and found out i had no storage. Now i have the bobber and a 05 that I've done a lot to to prepare for an upcoming cross country trip.
I'm glad it's not just me. My 86 is tons faster than my 05 almost to the point I wanna turn my 86 into the "big" bikeWith this configuration, & riding 2 up I can only get up to 70. But by myself 80 is reachable relatively easily. We both have an 85 Rebel, I find the 85 has more power than the 2nd gen. I find that mine rides much better with the 15:30 configuration. I also have never had to rebuild my carburetor. I do ride every month of the year in the Heat or in the cold.
