I'm sure this info has been covered on here at some point but not having much luck locating it . I know that 1127 blocks and cranks won't interchange with 1052's (without machining) but what about the head? From what I understand 1990 is a pre-shim era head. Will a 1990 head be compatible on a 1052?
Hillclimbing an 1166 in a modified CR 500 chassis.
Thank you both! I had the opportunity to pick up a 1990 1100, but already having (3 ) 1052's I wanted the option to put the 1127 head on my 1052 cylinders if needed. I will stick with searching for the 86-88 models.
Thanks Mike, I think I will buy that bike, I just need the engine for my hillclimber. But wanted to know mor about those 1127's. could you shed some light on dot head, never heard one referred to that way

Big block off my 1052
With a dot head
So that there is fact not hearsay
Well you just made my day Mike , i have 3 dot heads -1 spare that will go on my 88 -1100 along with 38mm flatsides and yoshi cams
i can remember something about the cam chain tunnel front or back that was suposed to be different
