they should, the '97 involved some changes in the power drive line.

I don't think it involved the plastics, but what do I know?

I think the '95 and later side panels are different. In '95, Honda lowered the seat height and I believe that affected the side panels. Not sure to be honest but it is something to consider.

Aftermarket side panels indicate that the 95 and later will fit the early bikes, too.
"These are the narrow 1995-2000 style of covers but, they will fit all GL1500s from 1988-2000"
Since you are going the other way, YMMV.
