Awesome Filter
This filter is on my GS500, and it works great. It takes some muscle to get the filter to clam onto the carb bodies themselves, but once that's done it fits like a glove and works great. I would also recommend purchasing a K&N recharge kit to keep this filter in great working order.

Note: For anyone else that has a GS500 and also wants to use this, it is highly recommended that a re-jet be done of your carbs, otherwise it will run dangerously lean.

good fit/not complete
The fit and style are very good but the kit does not come with any filter oil and the filters are not pre-oiled. I think for the price the kit should have a "starter" bottle of filter oil.

Great product.
Used these on my 2000 Ninja 250 street fighter. Increase in sound was noticable. Feels like a quality piece. Plenty of lip area to be seated well on the carbs. The fit was a little tight between the filters when mounted on the carbs but nothing that would deter me from buying them again if needed.

It gave my bike way to much air and I read online and people said even with a jet kit motorcycle shops couldn't adjust it right
