    Hey guys, so first off, one thing I’ve noticed is this is a MUCH more pleasant environment than Reddit 🥴 I’ll start with this, I know very very little about mechanical things but am really excited to learn. a neighbor gave me a 1986 450 that had been sitting for at least 4, maybe 5 years. Gas...
  2. Rebel 450
    Hey there -- Would love some advice. So for the past three weeks, my Rebel '86 450 has been feeling "weak," especially as I downshift towards a light/stop sign -- to the point where I've been throttling it to give it some life. Then yesterday, after a week of no-riding, I couldn't even keep...

    Hi, Got my '86 450 about 18 months ago, immediately got a new battery for it (KMG Sealed Maintenance Free), has been fine. Yesterday, I forgot to lock my handle bars, I must've pulled the key out in the ON position -- anyway, came back FOUR HOURS LATER, battery was drained -- called AAA, got...

    Hi everyone, I was out riding my 450 and my engine started to sputter like it may be running out of gas. When I increased the throttle it sounded even worse like it was going to die. After about a minute, it did die. Had to move the bike to the curb. I added a gallon of gas to the tank but it...

    Hi, I need to get a crush washer at the hardware store for my oil drain bolt, '86 450 -- don't know what size, is it 12mm or 14mm? Thanks!

    Hey, y'all -- Ugh. I just finished my second oil change on my '86 450, so the process/details aren't completely second-nature yet ... (My first time, I put too much new oil in, had to loosen the bolt and drain a bit out, was very messy, but I learned my lesson.) This second time, I put in...

    I just wanted to say, I put the Mikuni vm30 carb kit on my 1986 Honda rebel 450. I was really blown away by it! At first, as always, it needed a few tweaks. But within just a couple hours of tweaking the kit was on and set to run at its best. Super easy an I have very moderate experience with...

    Hey all, I just picked up a 1986 honda rebel 450 and it does not have a gas tank. I have found a 2004 rebel 450 gas tank and was wondering if anyone knew if it may fit? I did not relize that it would be hard to find a used oem tank. With that said if anyone has a 1886 gas tank or another year...
  9. Electrical, Charging and Battery
    On my 450, the rear turn signals have 3 wires for running lights. My clymers manual wiring diagram shows that the rear signals only have 2 wires. Are my rear turn signals supposed to be running lights like my fronts and the manual is wrong? Or has it been modified..I broke a wire on the socket...
