One thing I learned about the Honda Rebel is although it is an absolutely wonderful bike, the functionality is spartan. That unfortunately includes the charging system...

You would have to constantly be revving the motor at 6000rpm just to break even running two 35w lamps. You would not be charging anything at that point.

And yes, companies do sell products that might now work.

The Rebel can handle the two additional lights, I been using them for more than five years now. Just don't turn them on and leave your bike idling. The Rebel will not drain the battery above 1900 rpm, and since when you are riding you are above 4000 to 6000 rpm's your battery will charge. However your battery must be in good condition. An old battery will not perform good since it will not hold the charge or charge properly.

It's quite simple. The Rebel can provide a maximum of 100 watts of power; class dismissed. The newer Rebels run a 55/60 watt headlamp, throw in 35 watts x 2 and you are at a max of 130 watts.

Have not even accounted for the brake lamp or the occasional turn signals. Your Rebel battery would be draining constantly. Check out the rebel250.com forum for tons of really good info on why this will not work:

Great ideas for adding onto the Rebel! I've got an '85 that I'm looking to add some finishing touches to before I sell it. However, I may just want to hang onto this bike for a long time. It's just a fun cruise-around-town ride!
