GL1500 Timing Cover

Can I use the chrome timing cover from a GL1500 Valkyrie in place of the plastic one on a GL1500 Wing?

Rubber down, chrome up, throttle open!!

If the cover is missing, you may want one of these: http://wingstuff.com/products/3210-o...owl-for-gl1500

I'm wondering if this off a 1500 Valkyrie will work as a replacement for the timing cover on a 1500 Aspencade

I tried this once and could not get the Valk cover to fit where the frame front down tubes run close by.

All years of the Valkyrie use the same (one piece) cover.

All years of the GL1500 use the same (two piece) cover.

They are not interchangeable.

I was trying to fit the valk cover on a 93. I think if it was mounted on the engine out of the frame perhaps . The extra depth/thickness of the aluminum cover when trying to fit over the cam sproket it wouldn't go into place for me.
