I am a new rider!!!! I stalled my Honda Rebel. I've tried to restart it but it won't go. If I flood the motor what do I do? Also I have a hard time finding neutral and the rod is a little bent and loose, should I replace it? Thanks, Carol

Dear Carol,
To de-flood any engine (including aircraft piston engines) is to close the fuel valve, open the trottle 3/4 of a turn and crank the engine over untill it starts.  Attention!!! don't over-ref the engine during this procedure.

About the bend rods, some guys are born that way.

greetings

try closing the fuel valve off,then let the fuel out of the carburetor by unscrewing the screw at the bottom of the carburetor, drain until the fuel stops coming

Make sure the oil level is not too high.  My Rebel had too much oil in it and made it difficult to find neutral.  My friendly Honda dealer showed me that trick.

Carol the answer to open the throttle 3/4 is the right one it will clear out the carb and you might check or have the bike checked to see if it's running rich on the fuel mix.also as for as the shifting the rod does bend easy you have to go easy on it but you can straighten it out very easy also!

Shut off your fuel valve and try to start it for a few seconds the turn the valve back on that should do it. Check your oil level that is often the problem  I would also replace the rod mine was bent and it made it hard to find my gears and eventually broke in half and left me stranded.

The trick to getting to neutral is to sort of ease it up.

I have the same issue finding neutral my self on m 84 Honda Rebel 250. An I have when you really need to get it in neutral like stalled out at traffic light. I donít have any bent rod on my rebel. I was wandering if it is natural to the Rebels.
