    Hi Paul, the needle for both big twins (1340 and 1450) share the same profile. The needles change when it comes to the 2004+ Sportster 1200 models since those used the XB style heads. Of course we still make the N65 needle based on the original 1988 XL needle for those shops and tuners who still like that one, but it often requires the use of shims to get it just right.
