not to be picky, but you should state that the BSR34 is 2001+... I do believe.

before that the carbs did not have a mid-main.... which they have now....

I'll see if I can dig up the specs.

I see that your post is a year old, but in case you didn't find it yet check this out: Metasearch Search Engine - Search.com - (gstwin.com)
I just discovered this web site, I am not sure if they have it but it is worthy to look at it anyways.

I suggest you post the question on gstwins.com
That site is extremely active with hundreds of posts about GS500's every day. There are active people there that rebuild bikes and a couple even assembled bikes from spare parts and have a showroom quality bike.
Its free to sign up.
