Question about 2000 Honda CMX 250 Rebel
The answer is a carburetor cleaning. Todays gas is tough on these motorcycles with small carburetors. The ethol attracts water like a sponge and rusts out your carb.
Take it to a Honda shop and tell them to clean the carb, bike will be back to new once its done. As for your flat spot, there's an enrichment screw right in front of the carburetor bowl. Its tabbed so that your limited on adjusting it. If you take a dremel and are very careful you can grind down the tab so that you can turn it all the way around. I've found that once this is done if you turn it all the way in so its litely seated then then turn it back out about 2 and 1/2 times this should get rid of that flat spot.

Follow the throttle cable to the carburetors and look for the knurled screw on the carburetor linkage. Turn the screw inward to increase the idle speed and turn it outward to decrease the speed. If it does not idle right, replace or clean the air filter and spark plugs. Enjoy your Rebel. I had a 1986 Rebel back between 1987 and 1988. It got around 72 mpg around town and was loads of fun, but it beat me to death the first time I drove it up to the Mountains (about 60 miles away). I traded the next week for a 1988 Suzuki Savage LS-650J. Don't forget to drain the fuel tank and make sure there is no water or crud in the tank.
