Since the '81 XR500 was the first year for the plastic fuel tank, I doubt very much that it will fit on the '81 XL500, which has a metal fuel tank. From the illustrations in the Honda Motorcycle Identification Guide, it appears as though the XR tank mounts with two bolts on the lower front portion of the tank, and I'll guess that the XL tank still has the rubber grommets that slide on pins welded to the frame, just like my '80 XL500 has.
