Coil question

Postby Melloreel » Tue Dec 03, 2013 5:38 pm



Need to order used coil for the 92, but they have a 97 in stock! Does the 1500 use the same coil for all? Parts person doesn't know!

If they are not too expensive, get both!

Not trying to put the darks on you, but if one was bad, then you may need a spare for the future. On arrival, you can use your new found skills in diagnosing to ascertain whether either or both work, and so save you time if it ever happens again. (Not that it will, now that you have this insurance of knowledge and parts :roll: ).

Thanks Chris.
I don't want to buy two as I will probably never pull the coils again! I wouldn't call it a hard job, but by the time you actually get to the coils you're ready to strike a match :lol:
Having never worked on a goldwing it has truly been a learning experience. So many bolts, and so much plastic! Head starting to hurt, must lay down :D

You realize you just jinxed yourself by stating that, right? :)

Take my word , if one goes the others will follow, I had one go bad so I replaced all 3, and 100 bucks a pcs killed me, but I can say I'l never have to pull them again, and what a pain in the butt too.
