Question about 2004 Honda CMX 250 Rebel

Clutch slipping just bought my wife a starter bike, 2004 honda cmx250 Rebel and the bike runs fine but the clutch seems to be slipping. It goes thru gears and shifts fine but as i accelerate it seems to slip. im 260lbs and used to riding a harley touring so could it be the weight and i did move the handlebars forward a little

    Exactly the same. Used to my harley, and the Shadow 600 is obviously less power. It grabs for in the handle but only has 8000 miles on it. How can I tell if the clutch is shot? Cable adjustments are really not changing anything.

Bad news. a goodly amount of 2004's came out of the factory with faulty clutches.. there's been several efforts by rebel owners to get a recall on them, but no luck so far. hope that's not what it is, but bear it in mind if you find your top speed dropping.

I had the same problem with my Yamaha 650. Either the clutch cable is misadjusted or you are using the wrong oil. Since the clutch assembly and all that is built into the crankcase, you need motorcycle oil. Are you using motorcycle oil or regular automotive oil.

Im sure there could be more serious issues, but I would check these first.

Honda rebel cmx250 1986 won't start


Hi, Jenn before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

1983 honda gold wing 1100 ,120,000 klm,runs great .When should one be doing a clutch change?


If you go easy on the clutch and do not pull a trailer, you may never have to replace the clutch. My GL1000 clutch has over 150,000 Miles (around 240,000 km) on it and works just fine

I think you will find it behind the right hand engine cover ( clutch cover ) gasket etc may be required for replacement.

Right then..... I have a 1995 CBR600 F3 and when I bought it the starter sounded a bit loud but worked fine. I got it home and the next day it started fine. After a couple of days it wouldn't start at all....


Have a look at this diagram of your starting clutch. If the starter is working but not turning the engine over, this clutch is not pushing the starter gear into the flywheel or the clutch is worn out and slipping, not turning the engine over.

1987 Honda rebel 250 shifting problems


make sure you have proper amount oil in your gear box, i would change it since is 1987, check the cable, over time it things tend to stretch, squeeze the clutch handle fully, check if it pulling the clutch arm fully, if its not lift fully it will be also hard to engage and disengage the gears. low oil, dirty oil gives the gear very little lubrication will also cause the problems.

Have zl 900 1985 model clutch slips bad replaced clutch and fluids everything apears fine new clutch acts the same way trans shift thru all gears fine acts like clutch cable to tight but its hyd clutch any...


It might have a "wet" clutch like my Yamaha which means that the clutch is in contact with the motor oil. If you use motor oils that have cleaners in them to remove gunk and all that bad stuff then it can cause your clutch to slip. I don't mind the clutch slip though it keeps the bike from popping a wheelie under hard acceleration :)

Clutch slipping while cold, when warm/hot, it operates great.


I have a 2000 Vulcan Nomad FI & had a very similar problem. In fact, it's a very common problem with these bikes. I fixed it by replacing the Clutch Spring. (As Described here: http://www.gadgetjq.com/clutch_spring_replacement.htm

It cost me $40 and 3 hours of time with an impact wrench.
