Manual PDF

Hi Rebel owners & thanks for letting me join.
I have just bought my Rebel but as I live in Thailand, the manual is useless to me.
Does anyone know where I can download a PDF manual in English.

Another question is that I have filled the tank to half but the indicator still shows one segment to empty.

I had one bar left and could only put 1.8 gallons in. how did you judge "half" a tank?

Might not be a pdf file of it just yet, but google about and you might just find something?

The last segment, as you call it, fits a decent amount of fuel, so you might just still be within the range of that last one. Try filling it more and see if it changes then. If not, you might have a faulty fuel indicator in the tank.

Well it was only a guess by looking inside.
When I had the bike delivered it had a small amount of fuel so I put a few more litres from a bottlle 'still on 1 segment'.
The gauge only went to full after filling to near full at the pump.

American Honda Co. just emailed me a .pdf for the 500. It's too big a doc to attach here (4.5 MB). I used their online contact form:
submit a Web Form at powersports.honda.com/contact.aspx

[insert clever quip here]

I acquired a printed US manual many months ago, but your link will be useful to others that didnít get one with the bike.

Me too can’t read my Thai owners manual. I have to make my Thai wife translate for me. I couldn’t find an English one on line to download

https://motorcycles.honda.com.au/manuals - has tons on manuals but not the cmx, I submitted a contact form and they emailed me a copy. I also told them their site is missing the new cmx manual (the site is currently broken but it might get up there one day)

Nice service, Honda!

I got an English book from Bigwing it was a wrong one sent to a customer from Honda HQ, so they gave it to me, result.
Took it down to the local printing shop and they made another copy for my mate Ď40baht :smile2. Weíll keep that one quiet!
