I have a 1985 gl1200 limited editionthat I have to replace the left fork leg on. I found one for an 86 aspencade on ebay but when I cross reference the parts #s on bike bandit the 85s # is 668660 and the 86s is 668661. they look identical but I dont want to buy it if they changed something and they wont work together. anyone know?

i am 99.9999999% sure all 1200 forks are the same and can be interchanged. what may be different are the springs, i suggest you to use the same pair of springs.

I found when I went to buy head gaskets that they weren't available for a 1980 1100. They were available for later years. The part number was different. After comparing all of the individual part numbers in each year's set it was obvious they were the same parts.

The difference??? Price. The sets that were available were more expensive.

Just a thought.....
