  • Fitted one of these to my 2014 bike (not just for 13). Really well made, fits perfectly, does what it says on the tin - recommended!

  • I've painted this black. It's also a Givi. But hardly to get.

  • Fits ok. Good choice! :)

Kahit pala ini-istart mo ang XR every 3-4 days tapos idle for 30mins to 1 hour pero di mo siya pinapatakbo , nadidiskarga ang baterya. Kanina I tried starting my XR, nagwhine lang ang starter pero ayaw tumuloy. I charged the battery for 1 hour. After 1 hour start ulit, 1 click na. :)

  • ang pagkakaalam ko po diyan ay nagdidischarge talaga siya kahit nakatambay lang.

  • ang pai-start ng every 3-4 days ay maintenance sa makina ... di po ata sa battery. :D

  • hindi ba nag seself charging ang ating baterya kung umaandar guys?

  • As Jon Orton mentioned, check the rectifier/regulator. Very common issue onthese. You want to purchase yourself a finned type one opposed to the original flat type. I bought a cheap $13 Ebay one and have not had an issue in 3 years yet.

  • Even the cbr125 rectifiers work

  • My brother in laws blade was doing this last week check the back break spring hasn't come of. He had the same problem maybe a quick fix ;)

Help! The storm failed to start or turnover this morning. Ignition lights on, stand light on (& goes off when stand up) headlights work, horn doesn't. No starter relay clicking, just nothing.

Had to abandon & use car for work

  • The plot thickens!! Home from work, pushed bike out of garage. Horn works, bike turns over & fires first time. Start stops with key & kill switch. All working. No faults found, no repairs done. Bike fully working

  • If it's an intermittent leccy fault do you have recovery if you can't start the beastie away from home?

  • Yep got cover. 1st & only time any problems. Hope its all ok

Estimados Camaradas, debo contarles que me he desprendido de mi noble Rebel 250 1987 y he pasado a una Shadow VT 500 C 1983. espero me de las mismas satisfacciones que la Rebel. De todos modos, seguiré pasando por aquí cada tanto y sepan todos, que quienes vengan a Argentina, tienen un amigo! Paso libre y pista seca por siempre!

    • They say when you drive a car you have to anticipate every other drivers actions...on a bike you have to BE in every other drivers heads!!!

    • Before I retired the company I worked for assumed every accident was preventable and it was very difficult to prove you did everything possible to prevent it . This was annoying to some but it probably helped to make us better drivers and helped to keep us alive as we were taught defensive driving from day one.

    • They never taught us anything about motorcycles and I don't think they really liked us riding them as our medical plan covered off duty accidents.

    Next question regarding my 02 Rancher ES 350"

    It will start and idle, but after it warms up it dies at low idle. The carb is clean.

    %d comments
    • Yes to the Sea Foam. Great compression (extremely low hours on this vehicle). Sparky works great at low/cool idle and higher rpms, or at least, it does not appear to be an issue.

    • Sounds like just an very sensitive adjusting. Carbs are so temperamental when they need some love.

    • Google symptoms, there will be a similar question answered already on Honda forums by a Pro.

    • I have seen bigger bike that looks similar,,, also white and such fantastic contrast,,,, it was of course white and chrome and of course black tires etc, and saddle bags etc in the studded black,,, it stands out shining right at you,,,,, I fell in love with it,,,,, so I wish my Rebel was white, but it's not,,,, so tryin to think what to do with it

    • just like houses look better with more than 2 colors,,,, they look better with 3 or 4,,,,, in the same way I think the white black chrome combo looks great,,,,, really tryin to think how to brighten up my all black,,,,, my daughter says she thinks black looks sleek,,,, I wonder, like what, a black panther? yeah right,,,, so I really gotta do something with it,,,, but some love the Jardine pipes on mine,,,,,, I love your bike,,,, may you enjoy it!!!!

    • White a good color mine is the pearl white a paint job would probably cost a little bit I want new handle bars I'm 6,5 so I think I want ape hangers and I want a flat seat on it

    If my brakes are leaky, what kind of rebuild kit do I need? The caliper or the cylinder kit?

    %d comments
    • Rebuild is quite different from 'fix leaks'. For both brakes and forks. Seals and dust seals for forks will address most leaks when it comes to forks but that isn't a 'rebuild'. The wear items are the fork bushings and the springs. As long as you have them apart to replace the seals - rebuild them. It will only take about 20 min. additional per leg. As to the brakes - year and make specific is the best way to be sure you're getting the right parts. Stick to that.

    • Thanks man. The problem isn't time, it's money. I can spend $30-$60 on parts but not $150-$300 per part...

    • You'll be able to rebuild both calipers and the master for right about $100 total for parts and brake fluid. Shop around.

    • Thanks for yr advice, I'm keen to do a fundraising run like the one on at the moment in the future, might have to diet too!

    • Jeremy Eva Brown I put a pod filter on and drilled the main jet out from 0.69mm to 0.8mm. I removed the horizontal internal pipes/baffles in the exhaust. It was very loud.

      I didn't check if it was lean or rich but it ran fine, maybe a bit hot/lean.

    • The thing I find scary about a postie bike is the quick turn in on corners. Coming from a bigger bike it always gets me. The speed is fine
