3 ohm or 7 ohm coils

Post by RMBLOldwinger » Sat Nov 18, 2017 7:02 pm



I did not see a current thread on this although I have seen a lot of discussion on coils in the past. What I have not seen is the definitive answer to the coils on the 1983 GL1100. I understand that it does not have a pure CDI ignition, and it seems therefore that the 3 ohm coils should work on it. However 7 ohm coils are recommended for CDI ignition. Am I correct on the 3 ohm coils? Thanks so much for all the great information on this site!
