Pod Air Filters to fit GL500

1406 Views 25 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  LaGrasta
Hi All, I'm new to the forum. I am building a street tracker using a 1982 GL500 .
I am struggling with fitting pod air filters as the gap between the carbs and the frame is fairly small . I have thought about trying to mould standard pod filters around the frame. Its a posh was of saying I was going to bend them out of shape to fit...!!! Has anyone used shallower filters or is there another workround to fix this problem.?

Many thanks in advance..

I just had a look at the carbs from my 1982 GL500 Interstate. They are VB29B.
Many Thanks

Thanks for these links. The is a good site.
Either should work OK as it's chiefly the correct spacing required here.

mine fit no problem, tucked in.
I'm changing the sear of my 1982 CX500 eurosport, I like the way you've mounted the seat, any chance you could post a picture of the frame to show the sear mount without the seat in place.

NOTE: I inserted solid plugs, about 5 inches long, where the loop was welded to the frame, thus not needing gussets.
