Is the Rebel too small to take a long trip? Honda Rebel Online, The Unofficial Web Site
"First, I have a 1986 CMX450cc. I bought it last year with 4,500 miles on it. The 1987 450cc had larger jets in the carburetors, so I had them put into mine. This was the close thing to a jet kit that I could find. It didn’t cost much either. Then I added a spitfire sport shield, padded sissy bar, Willie & Max compact studded slant saddlebags and tool pouch. Then finally I added a highway foot pegs set that Dr. Rebel from Texas suggested. I change to oil every 2,000 miles with mobile 1 and I add Motor Koute."
Chain Lubrication and cleaning – Honda Rebel Online, The Unofficial Web Site
"Chain Lubrication and cleaning,- Lubricate every 600 miles ( 1000 km) or sooner if chain appears dry. The O-rings in this chain can be damaged by steam cleaning, high pressure washers and certain solvents Clean the chain with kerosene. Wipe dry and lubricate only with SAE 80 or 90 gear oil. Commercial chain lubricants may contain solvents which could damage the rubber 0-rings. Using the above has given me 17,600 miles from my chain so far. I use a brush to generously apply the gear oil. Hope this helps.
