Question about 1996 Honda CMX 250 Rebel

Open Question

I have a 2001 Honda CMX 250 Rebel and i am having an issue with the headlight. At first when i got the bike only the highbeam worked, but both the high and low in the bulb was not bad. Then the highbeam stopped working and only the low was on. A few weeks later the low didnt work and the high worked. The highbeam burned out and i went and got another bulb and installed it correctly and now neither lights work. It is wired correctly and we voltage tested everything, but i still dont know what causes this. Fuses good. Battery good. Brand new light switch, good. What else would cause this and where do i find the culprit? A relay or wire harness gone bad?

SOURCE: choke problem

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.
Good luck!

Check the start button switch , inside there's a wire that gives off voltage. Mine came off a was not giving the power. I did change the relay and fuse anyway.

You can add a headlight if the type of ignition system on your particular model is the type that will let you. Several different systems were used back then. The proper system will need a lighting coil installed onto the plate underneath the flywheel. The flywheel must be pulled off. You will see a coil there already for the spark. An unused set of threaded screw holes is present, (the same plate was used on the bikes that had a headlight). Just add the coil and now you have power for a headlight.

The engine of my 2001 honda rebel cmx250c starts in neutral but cuts off when i put it into gear. why does it keep doing that?


The bike thinks your kickstand is down. There is a switch that is activated when the kickstand is up, that switch may be broken or bent out of position. Either fix it or bypass it by twisting the two wires together or unplugging it and jumpering the connection and you should be going in a few minutes.
