'81 XL500 cylinder head on an '82 XL500R?

Recommended Posts

I've been looking around for a reasonably priced cylinder head for my 1982 XL500R. I found one from a 1982 XL500. Can someone tell me if that will fit? They look identical but I've looked all over and can't find anything definite about whether or not it will fit. 

Many thanks.

Best to get the rocker box too, as around '81 to '82 there is one extra bolt holding the box on.

 Measure cam and journals to make sure its all good regardless if you use the matched cam or your one.
