I wouldn't risk buying 1200 valve covers. The only things I could check for you is the valve cover gaskets and the 4 bolts. The 1200 uses different bolts and gaskets than the GL1100 just by looking at the Honda part numbers for them.

The 1000 and the 1100 are the same except for looks but the 1200 was different. In fact many parts are the same between the 1000 and the 1100.
