ignition coils

Post by Blackdog0501 »

After market coils. Recommendations? I've seen 2000 Neon coil used on an 1100. Accel or others?

Neon coils
Used them on my Aspencade 1200 was able to increase the gap from .035 to .045, planning on trying .055 nest.

Hotter coils either fire a plug with the same gap a bit stronger or a larger gap with the "same" strength.
A longer gap helps combust the mixture better.

The bike now idles much better. Choke seems about the same as prior to the Neon coils.
