Ignition coil replacement and compatibilty

Postby Briankc43 » Mon Apr 14, 2014 11:30 am



I read in another post that you can use GL1200 coils on a GL1000. I still have points in mine and figure the 1200 has electronic ignition and wouldn't be compatible. Looking for some confirmation, coils ain't cheap and I'm tired of limping around on two cylinders. I am too short on funds to go the Dyna route. Is there another bike from the Honda stable that i could use the coil off of? Thanks.
