Are '84 and '85 1200 heads interchangable? I'm working on a '84 with bent valves and have a line on an '85 head. I guess that's cheaper that doing the valves seeing as how valves are around $200 a set of 4! I can get the head for $125.

'84 & '85 shared a lot of parts. Honda made a lot of changes in '86. My guess is that it wil work.

I'd also gamble on the one year difference in production. Not real sure if ther were major changes in the fuelie heads or not.
