82/85 GL1200 gas tank

Postby twocams » Sat Nov 07, 2015 11:26 am



Does anyone know if an 82 GL1200 gas tank and the 85 GL1200 gas tank are interchangeable? They look the same by looking at pictures but..... I need another gas tank for my 85 its just to far gone and dont want to even mess with it.

Thanks

The GL1200 was only produced from 1984 thru 1987. Prior to that, they were 1100cc's and after they were 1500cc. As far as whether the 82 will fit, I haven't tried, but I wouldn't buy one from an 82 and hope for the best. There is even differences in the individual years of 1200 for certain things.
