2000 GL1500 SE air duct seals

Post by mjsracing » Mon Nov 05, 2018 1:48 pm



When disassembling the dash area, to address a rusty gas tank, all the foam sealing bits in the duct work were totally hardened and disintegrated when touched. There were also pieces of foam flaps in the ducts near the vent outlet louvers.

I ordered the two items listed in the parts fiche, Air Duct schematic, #15 Seal, Hot Air. There are other areas that had a similar seal that is now gone. Is there a source for this seal material? What have other folks used?

Thanks again!

You could try black or gray foam window seals used in houses.

You don't have to remove the dash to get to the fuel tank. LOL. But as Erdeniz said you should probably find that foam seal material in a roll at your local home improvement store. I think that all the ducts will have that same seal material around them.

Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.

Thanks!

The main reason for the dash removal was to get the carbs out for a cleaning and rebuild.
