Oh yes Shep. They load real fast. It's nice to not have to wait or hit X and reload several times. Good server!

Pretty smooth sailing over here. Nothing like that other site that comes up Cannot Open. System Error.
Over there I normally hit the post button several times. If it doesn't go in 5 seconds it isn't going to.

No problem, just a general question. Are the carbs interchangeable between the GL500 and the GL650? Are they the same except for the jets? Thanks.

Just so I am clear. You don't recommend pulling the seat out? That last couple of pictures was more for illustration purposes I understand.

Great work by the way. I am going to order a set of off ebay and see about doint this myself after I get my bike running decent.

Did you use a regular carb rebuilding gasket set to put it all back together?

The last 2 pictures were just to show what was under the needle and seat assembly. NO, do not pull that out.

I DO recommend pulling all the other jets out, including the idle jet that's pressed in.

Carb kits I have been getting from GOERGEFIX'S. Site is in the USA list forum here. Let him know you are on this sight when you call him. The 2 things I don't use if I don't have to is the new needle and the idle adjusting needles. They just dont seem to fit the same. Use the stock ones if they are OK.
