1981 GL1100 Left/Right Heads interchangeable?

Post by crumbliss.r639 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 7:04 pm



So I am looking at replacing one of my heads, because the one has bent valves (per my other post)

My question is, are the heads the same, or is there a definate Left head and Right head. I found a really good price for a set of heads on Ebay, one looks to be in good shape while the other looks to be iffy. The cams have been removed, but I can put my cam from my head in can't I? Visually by pictures I cannot see any difference between the two different sides, So I come to you asking if they are interchangeable. If so I want to buy these heads asap

Yes, the heads are interchangeable left or right. Same Honda part number for either head. Honda number 12200-463-010. What year Goldwing does the seller claim they are from?

I found a better deal on a single head so I went with that one.
