    Hey guys, Sorry if this has been asked before but I looked and couldn't find anything. I'm new to motorcycles in general, but decided to fix up a 2009 Honda Rebel I bought years ago. It's sat for around 7 years. I cleaned the tank and the carb, they actually weren't too bad, because I had...

    Hey I have a 2008 Rebel and my carb is leaking fuel and I wanted to do a carb rebuild. I tried searching the web for some rebuild kits (gasket and float needle), but I cannot seem to find one for my year. Unfortunately, the rebuild kits that I'm finding are for rebels up to '06. Do you think...

    Hello all and welcome, I've been having problems with my 125 rebel. The engine bogs under throttle, it runs better when the rubber air intake is taken off the airbox. I have replaced the air filter but that did not aid it. The carb has been ultrasonicly cleaned and the float needle is in great...

    Picked up my first bike not too long ago and need some advice. Grabbed an 08 off craigslist with 190 miles on the clock and seemed to have been well taken care of during those years it sat. In a few months I've got her up to 8xx miles and she's been running great up until about a week ago when I...

    The engine idles and runs well. However, if I turn the throttle about 1/8 of a turn and hold it there, the engine revs up a little then as I'm turning it then dies at the same spot every time. I can turn the throttle past and the engine will continue to rev all the way up but there is no fuel...

    So I have a similar situation to this one: http://www.hondarebelforum.com/f76/removing-carb-from-bike-12720.html except I got the rubber boot off the back, no problem. Nothing is connected to the carb at all except...I think it's sealed to the engine. Or actually to the flange that connects it...

    Does anyone have any info about what size the mounting screws for the float bowl on a 2002 Rebel are?

    So I just bought an '87 Rebel last week. First bike, new rider (passed the safety class woohoo!) and I know NOTHING about bikes. Go me. Initially the bike was spewing fuel from the overflow something or other, but seemed to run alright. First step, "we" (henceforth meaning me reading the...

    Working on rebuilding my carb but cannot find any clear link to any one carb kit for the 86 rebel. See a couple that do look close though. My question is simply are the carb kits interchangeable or do I need to look for very specific "86 rebel carb kit" kits? Been looking for hours now and have...

    First off, everyone contributing on this forum has been a huge help & inspiration to my build :) I've finally come to a problem I'm having trouble finding an answer for. I have chopped my pipes, installed a K&N air filter pod & nothing done (yet*) to the carb except had it cleaned. My bike fires...
  12. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    Here's the deal: I've got a 2007 Rebel that has sat for the last four years - untouched. I've cleaned, re-cleaned, soaked, and then re-re-cleaned the carb. All jets are clean and open. I changed the oil and have a new battery in it. The sparks fire strong. But it still won't start. All I can get...

    Hey guys! I've been Trying to figure out how to get my carb off my bike for about a week now, but I've had no luck. I can get the tank and seats and all that off, but no luck getting to the carb so I can clean it out. Can someone help me?
  14. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    Hey all. I am new to the forum and to motorcycles but am REALLY getting a lot of use out of the information here in my quest to figure out what I have gotten myself into! I encountered a bit of a problem today...I was warming up my bike, it's a 1986 250 that I have been pulling apart, cleaning...
