I did a general Google search on Rebel carb problems and found this forum. I hope to learn a lot here. I bought '99 Honda Rebel for $350 from a college kid leaving town. I am no expert mechanic but I thought it would be a fun project. The bike is in good condition, runs decent, (only with choke on). Never dropped but the front wheel has a little wobble. I suspect the previous owner hit a curb or something. The poor bike was seriously neglected and maintenance seemed to be non existent. Black oil and sludgy brake fluid and a rusty chain. I am slowly returning it to a better condition.
