First time Rebel owner and I’m trying to do as much research as I can before I start wrenching on this or let it go. I am very mechanically inclined so mods shouldn’t be a problem. But what I’m trying to figure out the big difference between the 82 from the 85 rebel. So as far as I can tell it’s the 4 speed from the 5 speed. Now is it possible to install the 5 speed without too much hassle ? I might just sell it and get an 85 if it’s my better option. Thanks in advance.

'85 was the first year for the Honda Rebel. You have a precursor to the Rebel. I am pretty sure that the transmissions are not interchangeable.

I believe it’s a CM250 T? I looked up the specs and it’s identical besides the fact it’s a 4 speed not a 5 speed. Well according to online of coarse but I just can’t find any real solid information on it
