I have an 86 GL1200 Aspencade SEI. The pipes to the muffler have rotted out. The matching pipes were only used on 86 and 87 GL1200 bikes. Would a whole system off an 84-85 bolt up fine? Local salvage has some of the 84-85 systems, but not sure on 86-87 systems. Wants $150 for complete system and is the only salvage yard I could find for a good distance.

Thanks,
Chuck

Look at yours, does both header pipes go into a Y collector before they go into the muffler? Check the one at the salvage yard and see if they are the same. One of the Gold Wings in 85 didn't have that Y, they went straight into the muffler. Have you checked at a muffler shop to see if they could make you a set of header pipes, I bet a good shop could do it.

Yeah, my pipes make a "Y" before they go into the muffler. The "Y" is part of the outer pipe and the inner pipe goes into it. Then the other end of the "Y" goes into the muffler.
