No, they are not the same.
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle

GL1100 '80
GL1200 '87
GL1500 '94

Thanks, I did not think so.
Does anyone know the specs on the cams, I guess I will need to find someone to make them for me.

RonAyers.com still shows both right and left cams available, and in stock. Price is $231 each.

RonAyers is always my go-to for factory "unobtanium" parts. They often have parts that everyone else says were unavailable years ago.

I would be interested in knowing why you need to replace the camshafts. Did it get low on oil, something in the crankcase that wasn't supposed to be there, overheating or ???

I think that link is for the Valkyrie, don't know if they interchange or not.

Guys, Digging around the parts fiches I found three different camshaft sets for the '00 1500s:

14110-MZ0-770
14120-MZ0-770

14110-MZ0-670
14120-MZ0-670

14110-MAM-A60
14120-MAM-A60

The '670's and '770's are Valkyrie cams, the 'A60's for Goldwings. Only the '770s are available both sides.

My guess is that the '770 cams would work in a Goldwing, but they have a different grind optimized for the individual carbs, and in order to get the Goldwing engine to run right with a Valkyrie cam, you'd have to replace BOTH sides!

Maybe one of the Guru's have experience with this.

IMHO you'd be better off searching a replacement cam from a wrecked/scrapped Goldwing...

Have yet to see WHY cam replacement needed....

My bad, sorry! I was at work, in a hurry, and didn't notice which '00 'GL1500 I had selected for the fiche.

Why on earth would the right side cams be available everywhere, but none for the right side??? Doesn't seem to make sense...

I do see that there are tons of pairs of cams on Ebay, and they're cheap as dirt. Could be a good pair might be picked up that way...I guess it remains to be seen what differences there are among the various years of 'Wing engines' cams.

I doubt the Valkyrie cams will work, they are solid lifter engines and have to be adjusted every 8,000 miles.

The parts fiche at Western Honda lists the right cam only but it is listed as being supplied by Vintage Parts Inc.

I’m also curious also as to why they need to be changed. Rusted, worn lobe, broken?
