I understand. Thanks.
I changed my mind.I will not buy a air filter. I will use stock one with new jets.
So 20/60/135 is ok?
Should i put washer or washers on needle?
3+ or 3 turns screw?

Rejet = changing your jet sizes for tuning purposes.

on the washers, they are rated with numbers. Number 4 washer is in a tiny box in a washer
drawer at any decent hardware store.

I think all the 2003's except for Canada are listed with an adjustable needle, so you don't need to worry about putting washers under the needles.

Main jets for the year (according to the manual) are 115, 127.5(Canada only) and 130.

You should be able to use the jets you bought with a stock filter and air box. The number of turns refers to the pilot screws. In some markets
the screws are concealed under brass plugs, because they don't want you to adjust them. Your pilot screws are probably adjustable. If you
don't want to mess with them, don't replace the pilot jets, just change the mains to 135. You may need to try different clip positions on the needles
after you change the mains.

Setting-up pods or a lunchbox filter can be pretty difficult to get right, these CV carbs were designed to work with an air box.

Well, apparently you have an iPhone, so make a video of your start-up procedure/issues, upload it to YouTube and post it here.

Hello everyone from Turkey. I have a 2003 GS500.
I want to change my jets. I learnd from wiki mine jets are 17.5/60/127.5.
So i bought 20/stock/135 from ebay. I have a few question.
1-) I saw on here some people put washer/washers to needle. These washers should be #3. But i dont know what means this symbol "#". Is this size of calibre , size of wall thickness or size of hole? Also that "3" is mm or inch?
2-)How much washers should i put there??
3-)i saw expression like "2.5 turn" , "3 turn". What should i turn exactly?
4-)I am thinking about buy a k&n filter (lunch box). Is it okay with new jets if i buy? Or i should use them stock filter?
5-)whats "rejetting"? Should i rejet my carbs after change jets and k&n lunch box filter?  or is this only needed when the filter is changed?

didn't you guys notice this dude's dismissive reaction to input before?

Hey OP, any new problems you are having are all due to the work you did on the carbs. The original problem is that you didn't know how to work the choke, and then you didn't know how to receive help from people who have more experience than you. Even if Buddha fixes your carbs perfectly, you're still going to have to learn to use the choke.
Iíve actually did everything you guys told me too. Youíve all been a lot of help I just donít think I know how to describe the issue. I understand the choke and all the other stuff but the bike just isnít right. Kinda new to everything so I sound very stupid but I have tried just about everything. Maybe itís a vacuum leak somewhere I donít know. But I canít get the bikes mixture right it seems.

It was looks like no one is making any side racks anymore. Sometime down the line, I'll have to build some. I like carrying stuff on my bike.

Hepco & Becker will still make side carriers for your bike. I have them on my GS500F. Its a "we don't make it 'till your order it" situation for older bikes but if you order them from Motomachines.com in 4-6 weeks you will have a nice set of pannier racks that work with any of Hepco & Becker's nice side cases. I have the Junior 30 liter cases on mine.

They aren't cheap but they are very nice and made in Germany. I have one set of cases I swap between whichever bike I'm riding. You can often find used sets of cases on eBay and advrider.com. I've been using the same set of cases for 10 years, across many bikes and a few accidents/drops and they still look good.

Thanks for the tip, those racks look great!
