Thumbs up What did you do to your 2017+ Honda Rebel 300/500 today?

Share what you did today with the 3rd Gen 2017+ Honda Rebel community!

Example: Took my Rebel 500 in to service today for an oil change. Can't wait till she gets broken in.

Example: Gave my Rebel 300 a nice wash followed by a coat of wax for protection.

Example: installed a new windscreen and weighted bar ends. The windscreen makes a huge difference at higher speeds.

Anything goes....

Installed the pillion seat and pegs. It was a little difficult but the instructions were spot on.

Where did you get the lower rubber covers? They look good.
I think they should come stock that way.

Just ordered 41mm ones from amazon. Though they are slightly larger, could probably have went with 39mm ones.

Just a suggestion, but maybe post links to what you bought in this thread?

My bike's not in yet (shipped today, so a few more days), but I have these Kuryakyn Kinetic grips (black on black) ready to install.

I also plan on replacing all the lights with LEDs, but haven't purchased anything yet.

I put the first 24 miles on it then installed a helmet lock/license frame.

And I bought an LED headlight.

So today I picked up my new Rebel, though they were mistaken on what was coming in... it is a black 500, but it's not the ABS model, so I saved a few extra hundred in price and taxes.

Put around 35 miles on it, then brought it home and installed the above linked grips (huge difference!) and an LED headlight kit (also huge difference!). Took it back out for another quick ride, so I'm probably a little over the 40 mile mark for the day.

The wife is working doubles all weekend, so I plan on spending quite a bit of quality time getting to know this bike better, but so far, I'm super pleased!

Get some pics up. I would like to see how the grips and headlight look.
