Question about 1982 Suzuki Gs 550 L
yes they are pritty tight. lol
First make sure you loosen/remove the air box mounting screws to let the airbox go as far back as it can go.
Same withe the clamps-loosen & push back.
On older bikes like yours, the rubber air boots(at the airbox side of the carbies) shrink & go hard making it harder to get the carbies out.
Once or twice I've seen them like so hard,I had to brake the rubber cause it lost ALL it's give.
If you find that the rubbers are hard- you can try pouring hot water over them to soften them or heat them with a hair-drier which will help.
Pull the carbies towards the airbox till the front of the carbies pop out- then drag to one side(usually left).
I hope my tips prove helpful.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli
