Hey everyone!
I recently purchased a set of rebuilt heads for my gl1100 and discovered theybate actually gl1000 heads.
Has anyone here made this swap?
I'm having a hard time getting straight answers about it from anyone and I'd like to find out if I wasted my money,?
Thank in advance for your time!

No problem except the cam stem on the 1000 head will stick out or you have to replace 1000 cams with 1100 cams ..if this is not easy for you you might want to return the heads ..but on the plus side there a chanice this is a performance up grade it the 1000 heads have the early cams 75-77 yrs in them .also it's most of the way modded to 1000 ignition systems .points..dyna so if it was.me I'd use them
