Question about Honda CMX 250 Rebel Motorcycles

My 2006 Rebel 250 won't start right up

Just bought a 2006 Rebel, 7000 miles. The dealer explained it was a little touchy starting, and I may have to hit the ignition switch a few times before the motor catches. But it takes me 10-12 tries every morning (and sometimes in the afternoon) before it will turn over, no matter what position the choke is in. Is there any way for me to fix this?

Do the following check:
-colour of spark plugs, if it is wet then u may have too much petrol to it and alse check the gap.
-check ur filter and check the carbs.You may need to give it a good cleaning here..If this does not solve then go back to ur dealer,this bike has only 7000 miles and should not be doing this.Also note that most bikes need a bit of choke to take this into consideration.Also a new spark plug could help..

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.

'04 Kymco Venox won't start. Bought it a few months ago from someone w. about 20,000 miles on it. Always runs good/never had a problem w. it 'til yesterday. Ran outta gas on the road...put more...

Hi Mrcherry99, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service department and inquire about any possible quick fix. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if possible, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.

Engine noise

First let me say that at 7000 miles no noise is completely normal, make sure the dealer noted the problem so if it becomes a defect your covered, second, with it being so new, anything you might do on your own could void your warrenty!!! That being said, i would start with only using a high octane fuel, as low grade fuels are known to cause valve ping, this is probably what your hearing, if after a few tanks of high octane it still continues, take it back to the dealer, if they give you the same story, go to another dodge dealer, ALL dodge dealers will look at it, and if you tell them the people you bought it from are ignoring your problem they will be more than happy to get your business and tell you the truth, good luck!

2006 f-250 stalls at idle and when parking

Sounds like fuel pump and filter if you bought it used then maybe no one ever changed fuel filter and if not then it will eventually damaged the fuel pump.

Ticking noise in engine

It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.
