Recently while putting my carbs back on my Honda Gl500 my carburetor manifold cracked by the bolt. I am curious to see if there are any alternatives for the GL500 manifolds? or if a CX manifold would work. I have been looking online Honda discontinued making the part and I am not able to find any on eBay. The Part number is 16221-MA1-000. Any help would be greatly Appreciated.

has anyone bought a new cx500 intake boot and cut the aluminum on both the old and new boot and have it welded back together? i have a 1982 gl500 with a crack in the right boot and i am thinking about buying a cx500 boot and cutting it along with mine then having my friend weld the pieces together. i do not see why this wont work since the new boots are available for the cx500

Not something that I have tried, but could the rubber part be removed from the CX manifold and installed on the GL500 manifold?
