The gear box is not separate on the honda rebel, which means it is using motor oil. chaning oil is the best thing you can do, although you may also want to check your linkage. probably needs to come off, get scrubbed clean, and lubed with a bit of grease.

rebels are famous for their hard to find neautrals.

ALSO! when moving, try pulling your clutch in and slightly revving your engine right before you shift into neautral. this will disengage some safety device the purpose of which i do not understand.

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.

My 250 honda rebel runs fine in neutral but shuts off when i put it in gear. When i don't have the cluch engaged it lurches foward slightly then shuts off.


Check the side stand kill switch. Broken, loose or out of adjustment it will kill the bike when put in gear. The idea is to prevent starting out with the side stand down. Check the wires and connections also.
