That is right, most of the diagrams are wrong (I think the ones in the manual and on OEM parts sites). Here's the wiki link with really helpful and corrected diagrams. They can also be found in the Files section in the facebook group :cheers:

There is light at the end of the tunnel! And no I don't believe it's a train coming the other way  :icon_lol:

Splashbacks are finally up... what a time consuming job that was! Turns out cutting 2440mm x 1220mm acrylic sheets neatly, squarely, and avoiding chipping out the front etc. is a tricky job. So glad that's done!

The gas fitter and electrician were in yesterday also so we have a functional kitchen at last.

Now it's just the finishing jobs like doors, handles, kickboards, and some other odds and ends to be done.

Forum has lots of great stuff on there.  I was looking for a post (i think) Bri,...errr Show posted on the lines but I can't find it.  Somewhere somebody said that the manual had the lines wrong in the diagram.

Iíll have to look for it and join! Didnít even think to check Facebook! So Iíve ordered new kits, thought Iíd get another new one for the other bike as they were so cheap.
Took a couple of pictures now Iíve been out and taken off the airbox, no idea how to post them but will explain the hose layout just to be certain Iíve not been a complete novice with it all!

So from the fuel tap I have four hoses, narrow hose on the back I believe is the vacuum which is connected into the top of carbs near the choke rail. Itís connected to the left carb if youíre looking from the back of bike towards the front so itís routed pretty much inbetween the carbs.
The central hose which is the main fuel line?, goes into the bottom connector inbetween the carbs, with the top connector being the breather hose that effectively doesnít go anywhere?
Then the other two hoses on the fuel tap are the main fuel line and reserve line that feed back up to the petcock in the tank?
Looks like it does in the Haynes manual so Iím hoping Iíve not made a gross error there thatís causing the problem.
Hopefully the kits will arrive Monday/Tuesday so I can then update further once Iíve stripped them and swapped it all over, guess Iíll have to find something else to break over the weekend  :hithead:

Servus,

On Egli's bike are selfmade manifold pipes with Megaphone Race.

He used selfmade camshaft.

The modification on the Video with Flat slide carburator and without Balance statt and Alternator.

If you want to ride Stock with the Megaphone Race you need a new Setup on a Performace Test Bench.

Thanks for the comments! Iím going to start getting stuck in on Saturday. The leak is definitely the head gasket, Iíve check the cam cover gasket and itís fine. Hopefully Iíll have a working sealed GS500 in a few weeks

I wrote that up after struggling through my own work the hard way and sifting through the mass of very durable misinformation all over the internet (like, "hanging idle means it's running lean", "with bigger intake and exhaust, you need bigger jets because it needs more fuel to make more power", "vacuum leaks mainly affect idle" and other hits!).

So far it seems like many people have found it useful! I even see others on this forum pointing people to it. Warms my heart. And hopefully makes people's GS500s run a little better and with less trouble.
