You obviously love your steed and rightly so! (As I do mine FLHR) There are always issues as to what & which, I believe your CMX should use 10/40 or 15/40 grade? but that can change with conditions, I'm banging this to you From the U.k. so here 10/40 if a very warm climate maybe 0w/10 or similar, it really is a confusing issue.(I would be up for 10/40!) Par for course?
Firstly I would suggest a quality synthetic (Fully) your handbook will show grade, however if No handbook your supplier (Motorcycle Dealer) will have all relevant specifications on file. As for filter Go genuine it makes sense as there are naughty Far Eastern mass producers of cheap copies out there and they really don't give a didddly squat about your pride and joy so if malfunction occurs after your expensive investment! What a Bu'~mer!
Good Luck! please remember to press that BLUE button for my FREE effort!
Thank You!

I need someone to tell me how to replace the timing chain on a 04 Honda rebel. I have tried and tried to get someone somewhere that knows how and just can't find anyone.

The cam chain is a endless chain. You will have to split the cases to replace it forcing you to remove the engine from the bike.
I have a 2005 rebel with 38,000+ miles on it and still have the factory chain. What makes you replace it. Unless there was mechanical damage or you put a lot of mile on it you shouldn't need to replace it. It also has an auto tensioner in it so you don't have to adjust the cam chain.

If you take the valve cover off you will see the top of the chain. try to wiggle the chain. If there is no freeplay between the chain and sproket then your chain should be fine. If the chain pulls away the sproket then it needs replaced.

Rebels don't have oil filters so it is important you change your oil often. the drain plug has a little "crush" washer on it. that MUST be replaced every time you change your oil. You can pick one up at a motorcycle shop for about 90 cents. If you reuse or remove the crush washer eventually your threads will strip and/or the blot will back out when your going down the road. and the drian hole is positioned where the oil will leak out right under your rear tire.

I need to know to change my oil on my honda shadow aero. I would also like to know the best oil to use, how much oil and in general a brief description of the process, thanks! (this is so i dont have to...

You will need an oil filter (Fram,Honda, Emgo) an oil filter wrench (Honda or K&L) an aluminum oil drain plug washer, and any oil that has the JASO MA motorcycle oil rating. 10w-40 for cold climates and 20w-50 for warm climates and touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Center stand the bike, use the wrench to unscrew the filter and place it in the pan. Wet the lip of the new filter with used oil and screw onto the engine. Be careful not to over tighten ( you will regret it next oil change). Place the pan under the drain plug and remove using a six point socket. Inspect the aluminum washer if it looks like a normal washer re use it. If it is deformed replace it.Put the drain plug back in with the sealing washer and snug it up tight. Do not over tighten , it only needs to seal the oil in not hold a cylinder head on. Grab a funnel and take out the fill hole plug , usually the dip stick on a Honda and pour in 3.5 quarts of oil. Put the plug back in , start, and run the motor to fill the oil filter. Now check the oil level and top up as needed you should not need more than 4 quarts total. If you want the bike to run cooler and shift easier you can use synthetic oil ( costs more ).

Where is the oil filter on my 1997 honda rebel?

the only one you have is internal to the engine. you don't have one to replace on a regular basis. It's more of a screen then a filter. Change you oil regularly. the motor is bullet proof.

Bike has been standing for 3/4 months started straight away but gears feel stiff could this be that the oil needs changing

Start the bike till running temp is reached .while the engine is hot ,change the oil and filter.take great care not to burn yourself .When the engine is hot you will find the oil drains away much faster and all the old stale oil will drain out of the engine & gearbox & clutch ..Once you have replaced the old oil with new oil and filter .this should cure the problem of stiff gears .
