engine running rough up date update

Postby legstoshort » Thu Sep 25, 2014 2:56 pm



Hi every body on goldwingdocs.
Thank you for info about my spark plug problems.
Special thanks to Hawkeye gl1200,ct 1500 and castlewing.
I did some more checking to day at points and when I put test light one + two I got dim light,but when I pull yellow (wire for 3+4 points) out at double connector I am getting a spark and test light for 1+2 points goes bright,i can also hear a faint clicking.(I think is at coil for 1+2)
I have ordered some new coils, I am worried
about putting these on as wiring is different,also read a lot about not using resistor.
Any videos about coil fitting?

What brand of new coils did you order? What is different about the wiring????

Hi dingdong,
Thanks for help.
The coils I got today are ai that's all it says on box.ps just got box and it says on end Hi Level part number 713612, I don't know what ohms they are but I ordered coils for gl1000.
Coils have only two wires orange and white, coils that are on have three or maybe four as I have not got them of yet as they are a bit of a pain to get at.
I know yellow wire from points goes to right coil and blue/yellow goes to left coil.
What about resister, do I tape wires to gather or just tape end of.
One of the other wires (I've just been and had good look) is black/white, there is another wire but I cannot make out what colour it is.
One company I rang about coils said I did not need resister with there coils, I brought same coils from local bike shop.
I love this Goldwingdocs as everybody likes to help novices like me.
