Yep...  check the gswiki for jet settings.  :thumb:
I ride because it gives me the space to empty my mind off all that is bad and refill it with good.

You can use the restrictor included... should be fine with your existing jetting!

Have a look at the sparkplugs... and look the internet for a guide! New plugs will help in the process ( I will do the same in the following days.!)

here some extra help :http://beergarage.com/GSJet.aspx

cheers

Restrictor comes with the K&N drop-in filter and provides similar airflow to a stock paper filter. OP is talking about pods.
Hopefully the K&N "Lunchbox" filter and not actual pods. Nobody has been able to get the GS500 to run well with pods.
