I just ordered plugs for the back tubing by the hitch and the 4 pieces in and under the bed. I am surprised that Honda didn't spend the 40 cents to plug the tubing! I will send pics once I get them.

You can get these plugs on Ebay for little money. Just search Honda Pioneer and scroll through.

I ordered them from Mc master Carr company but you must be a business to order through them. It was about 16 bucks but you get about 10 extra plugs. They come in packs so I ended up with extra.

Capping them for a finished look is fine, but remember, if you have rust or moisture in there already, you are going to make the issue worse. Just tossing that out there.

Yep. Personally, I like to use chain lube. It goes on thick, and doesn't shed easily. Wrap a rag in wire. Coat it with it. Push it up the tubes with some dowel, then use the wire to drag it back out. Then use the can and spray it in the end nice and heavy, or repeat the process till your happy.

You can use the aerosol undercoating with the extra long straw the one with the holes in the sides of the straw. That would put a permanent coat inside But don't seal it to good you don't want it to hold water. I would just coat the inside I don't think I would put the plugs in so the water and junk could get out.

I purchased the main frame plugs and the plugs for under the bed off Ebay for about $24. I RTV'd them in and removed the ones Honda installed and RTV'd them too. I didn't spray or put anything in the tubes before installing the plugs. I'm not equipped to spray that long of a distance/deep so thought anything other than oil would/could just hold junk. I never sprayed oil for fear it would not allow my RTV to set up. Having said all this my bike had not been ridden other than blacktop before I installed the plugs.

I agree. When I first brought my P2 home, I took a can of black gloss Krylon and prayed up into the rear frame hole. It is not going to stop rust from happening but it will slow it down.

You also have to remember that the front and rear diff vent tubes are connected to the frame. If you make the frame completely air tight, the vent lines will not work properly.

Plugs

I put the plugs on every ride so mud doesn't get in the holes. Then I pull them out when washing (after mud is washed off) Then blow dry to get dry. I put the plugs on the seat so I remember to put them in before loading. Just my 2 cents.
