What is the cylider numbers?
I thought it was #1 and #3on the right side , And #2 and #4, on the left side of the bike as you sit on it , facing forward. And the #'s start from the front?????????

Also coil configuration to match the cylinders is ?????????

All help will be more than appreciated.

what is the firing order of the cylinders (starting from front to back/right to left), and how to connect the coil wires to the spark plugs correctly.

Just to make it simple. The right front is #1. Right rear is #3. Left front is #2. Left rear is #4.
The right coil fires #1 and #2. Left coil fires #3 and #4.
