After several years in the back of the garage I've pulled out the 1975 GT 250 and started working on it. The air box was missing when I bought the bike, so I'm looking for one or alternatives to one. I didn't really want to go with the hassle of trying to tune with a set of K&N pods, but have been unable to locate a stock air box. Any options out there? Is there a larger K&N or alternative that I could mount on the rubber boot that connects to the carbs? Is there a two boot single filter that would connect directly to the carbs? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The same airbox was used for 73-75 GT250s. 76-77 have a different design.

An airbox is available via eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-74-Suzuki-gt250-gt-250-intake-airbox-NICE/261652591977

The rubber boot between the carbs & airbox tends to harden over time, so do not use a used one. New rubber boots, air filters, carb clamps & misc parts are available from Suzuki.
The rubber-boot-to-airbox clamp is NLA but its also available on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-SUZUKI-T250-T350-TM400-TM250-GT250-INLET-REAR-CLAMP-09402-80306-LOT-OF-2/183119953479

They are a bit fiddly to fit, but the standard airbox is a good way to go for economy, smoother power delivery etc.

Hmmm, not sure why there are three identical posts out there. I guess if this one is repeated three times I know it's time to burn this possessed laptop and get a new one. :oops:

I don't think it is your laptop. I have caused my share of double posts on forums (but never 3 if I recall correctly) and have found that if you go directly to the top of the page after you let the view of your post come up automatically (don't click on 'View Message" and click to return to Board Index page stops the chance of a duplicate post.
