Is that a spark plug I'm seeing in that picture? That seems odd. Did they do dual plug heads in '87?

My buddy had a 1200 SE upgrade kit done to his 1990, and it came with dual plug heads as part of the kit. I don't know if the stock 1200s had dual plug heads, maybe just the SE upgrade kit.

Good eye!

John
