Great, I didn't want to doubt my choice. Can I ask one more question, I paid $2500 for it. Did I get a good deal?

and Hello from the southside!

I wonder if this has extended to the early 2005 models. I just purchased a 2005 Rebel with 49 miles on it. I got up around 450 miles on it when the clutch just died. It is at the dealer right now.

i believe we've had some early 2005's with the problem -- listed in this very thread -- don't remember if they were actually manufactured in 2004 or not, but doesn't matter.

i'd be citing the info in this thread and asking for warranty coverage.

call the 800 honda customer service number in southern calif for backup if you need it.

"call the 800 honda customer service number in southern calif for backup if you need it"

Does anyone have a list of the customer service numbers I can call about this issue?

Thanks!
Cliff

you just go to honda.com and click thru to motorcycles and customer service.

the number is here:

http://powersports.honda.com/help/index.asp?bhcp=1

seems like there was an 800 number -- might still be if you look further through the site.

Put it all back together, new oil, new gasket, and it runs and shifts just fine. If the clutch goes out prematurely it won't be because the judder spring was installed backwards.


Here's some pics that are clearer than what you see in the manuals.

Just a little follow up. I now have 1,920 miles on my 2004 Rebel. No clutch problems, or any other problems. :D

This may not be over yet. I have an 06 and the clutch went out at about 3200 miles. It turned out that the clutch was assembled with the WRONG springs. They were smaller than the stock springs. This may be an isolated incident, but maybe not.
The dealer fixed it under warranty, no charge.

I have a 2004 with less than 2300 miles and I had to have the clutch replaced, it took 6 weeks at the dealership in Savannah Ga. No recall yet, so I'm unhappy to say I have now joined the $200.00 clutch club, thanks honda for turning your back on your customers.

Hmm, about 7500 miles on my 2004, I guess if it had the clutch problem it'd be obvious by now?

I think mine may have had it, and been fixed before I got it.

How many miles on your Rebel? The "2004 clutch problem" seemed to manifest itself before 1000 miles. If your Rebel has the problem, you'll know it. The clutch just won't feel right.

My advice? Start at page one of this thread and keep reading.
