  1. Engine, Carburetor, Fuel System & Exhaust
    I bought my Rebel 16ish years ago, and the previous owner had put straight pipes on it. I thought it was badass when I was 17, not really into it anymore. I posted a while back about baffles, which I eventually bought and installed, and sadly they did absolutely nothing to silence this can of...

    I've attached three photos. After installing the exhaust I noticed the joint and collar doesnt directly push on the rim of the exhaust. The exhaust headers can move away and towards the cylinder head a distance of about 1/8". It doesn't seem to indicate an exhaust leak and i'm scared to tighten...

    Hello all, Looking for answers/advice on this topic. Was changing my oil today and noticed something I had never noticed before. When I turned the bike on to let it warm up and reved the engine, oil droplets would come out of the drain holes in the exhaust pipes and hit the floor. The harder I...

    has anyone tried using the Pandemonium2 Ya Mama xs650 exhaust on their rebels? Either a 250 or a 450. i really like the look to those pipes. And since i plan on lowering my bike they would keep them away from the ground. Some exhaust wraps and your golden. You wouldn't burn your leg right? in...

    Fairly new to these bikes and riding them so I have 3 simple questions that the more experience people can answer. 1. Sometimes when I let off the gas I get backfiring/popping from the gas. Is this a vital problem? If so any recommendations? 2. Sometimes I have to start the bike with the choke...

    Gaskets, pipe joints, and new bolt nuts came in the other day and was putting them in today. Stared at spot where I figured the copper circular gaskets go and couldn't figure out where they went, scraped at the area a bit with a small needle and a bit of copper sheet started tearing away so I...

    So I want to run drag pipes, but I know there's the back presure issue, I've heard alot of you run freeze plugs in the end of the shortie mufflers, think it would work with drag pipes? Has any one ran them like this?

    Purely from an aesthetic perspective: What would be better... Titanium or Black DEI exhaust wrap on a black honda rebel?

    How do, everyone? I updated my build blog. Bike still isn't done, waiting on a fender and work to give me some free time. I put on the MCM cocktail shaker mufflers and they sound really, really good in my opinion. Check out the site for a video and photos. Enjoy, enjoy.
