    Look at the casting numbers. Depending on what year cylinders, 800 cylinders may be stamped 66E and 1200's 66V.

    Lightbulb ?

    Hey there surferdude..

    As mi11ertyme26 posted the 800's will have 66E cast onto the side of them and the 1200's have 66V cast on them..

    Other than that, the obvious difference is in the ports..!

    Particularly the two on either side of the exhaust port..
    On the 800 (66E), These two ports have a sloping side going downwards towards the exhaust port..

    Unlike the 1200's which have rectangular transfer(intake) ports...

    Hope this helps..

    Gerry
