Coil wiring question

Post by Dintrepid00 »



Hello all,

I replaced one of coils on my gl1100. I went to re attach the wires for the coil and checked in the Clymer manual and they were different from how it was attached on my bike. I found this on Randakk's site

Correct coil wiring ??

Wireing from Randakk worked for me. New coils installed still have low idle issues. Old coils had cracks. Idle worked decent when engine cold but when warm engine would die at low idle. Carbs were rebuild in 2018, new air filter, oil change and filter, sea foam twice with premium gas. Carbs are in sync. Next step to replace coil wires to plugs.
