After chatting with (more than)a few Honda folks who were as lost as I on the subject, we came to the following conclusions, with the help of a LOT of referencing: (Years are inclusive)

1988 to 1989 GL1500part number 12200-MN5-020

1990 to 1997 GL1500 part number 12200-MT8-040

1998to 2000 GL1500 part number 12200-MT8-A80



After the hassle I had to get this straightened out, methinks it'll be a handy reference for this forum.(THIS does NOT include the Valkyrie heads)IF YOU GET OTHER ANSWERS KINDLY LET ME KNOW. Ride safe.

The good news if you are looking for a used head is that they all interchange. The differences are all internal, 1990 got needle roller bearings for the cams and 1998 got the Valkyrie heads with different cam profiles. If you want to use 1998 and later on an earlier GL1500- then you should get both left and right heads.
