    Unfortunately we haven't had too many Rebel owners join the forum to date. In the library I have the 85-87 FSM and the 95-08 FSM. It's going to be a case of checking part numbers for specific items like the stator, voltage regulator, ignition switch, coils, etc. Research time unless you can find an answer on one of the Rebel forums.

    Sounds good. Thanks again longdistance for your help so far! I'll probably migrate this thread to one of those forms then post my results here once I'm finished incase another rebel owner wanders this way like I did.

    If anyone is still able to reply, can someone let me know how things went with the wiring. I currently have one wire that keeps melting if I'm correct it's with the main fuse blowing out. Can someone help? I'm new to this fourm and I don't wanna sell my bike if I don't have to. It's my first bike and I wanna enjoy it for a little bit then pass it down to my son.

    If you've got a wire melting BEFORE a fuse blows, please verify that you're using a fuse with the correct rating.

    Then track down the cause by removing light bulbs and or systematically unplugging stuff while trying to recreate the failure.

    But first give this a read: https://www.hondatwins.net/forums/23...e-posting.html

    I'm sorry that I haven't replied, if and when you have a chance anyway that you are able to add me on Facebook? facebook.com/elrunt that's the line to my Facebook. It was a green wire to the I believe a little black cube. I can't remember the exact name but I can let you know when I get home from work. I'll shoot you a text when I can but I have horrible reception at my house at the moment, yet Facebook works best.

    I'm guessing the wire is actually Green with a red stripe and that little cube is the diode Honda calls a rectifier......
    Might be better for you to phone me at the number in red below when at the bike......

    It was the diode, I will if I can get reception. Only thing is that I have the whole bike torn apart.
