To be honest get any 12 volt ones from a bike accessories shop to suit either electronic or points ignition. I have used coils like these with no problems. ,,

Replaced both coils on my XS1100 after it back fired and come to a stop. It cranks over beautifully but doesn"t fire and instead will backfire every now and then. Would that be the CDI unit or what?

If the replacement coils didn't fix the original problem, chances are your old ones are okay. It could be the CDI or else the pick-up coils on the stator plate or even the stator itself. It also could possibly be part of the wiring loom rubbing off the frame & earthing somewhere.
Best thing to do is....if you have a manual & a multimeter, is to test the electric till you find the fault.

Coil not firing

Either your coils are bad, or they are not getting power, or they are not getting a signal from the pulse coils.
Check ignition fuses
Check for ~12V at coils with ignition on.
Find pulse coil connector, check resistance across leads, should NOT be zero, and should not be infinite, consider about 100 ohms OK. (These wear out more often than the coils.)
If these three checks are OK, check the primary and secondary resistance of your coils. The resistance across the wire connections on the coil body should be about 10X the resistance from the spark plug wire to the coil connection.
All the best!

I am riding a yamaha R1 04 model. My coil has burn twice..what could possibly be the problem...has anyone ever encounter this? help anyone? Thanks

Try a different manufacturer for the coil or check the power to the coil, certain coils only accept a certain amount of voltage, if the voltage is too high then it could blow the coil

I have a 94 suzuki rf 900 that only fires on two cylinders 1 and 4. im told its a ground problem but i cant find it. Does anyone know where to look or what else it might be.

Follow the coil wires, (the ones attached to the spark plugs), to the coils. One side of each coil should have a wire that goes to ground, possibly right to the bolt holding the coils to the frame. Make sure those wires are hooked up and grounded. There will be other wires going to the coils that are not grounded, do not ground those.

No spark checked points they have spark how do I check coil assy. or change wire to spark plug a OEM ignition coil is spendy

If the points are working correctly you are having a problem with the condenser ,coils,spark plugs,or spark plug caps. Honda condensers are notorious for being week. Spark plug caps have resisters that burn out or corrode. Coils can go bad but do not usually go out in pairs. Plug wires can short out the spark if the are old and cracked or wet. One coil does two plugs so on shorting wire on each coil will kill all the spark.You can see this if the bike is running at night where it is dark. Aftermarket Accel coils($150-$200) might be a good option along with an after market CDI ignition (may still be available through Parts Unlimited about $200). I suspect that your problem is still the points. Power is going to them but not leaving them. Even new points may have to be reinstalled several times before they decide not to short to ground.

Hi, I have a 1998 cbr 600f3. There are 2 coils on this bike for 4 cylinders and two wires coming in and 2 coming out(spark plug wires going out). I can only get one side of both coils to fire so the bike...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On the 2 ignition coils:
  • two wires coming in - black/white carries/supplies IGN + 12 to both coils and the ignition control module. Coil1 (left) is connected to the ICM by the yellow/blue wire while coil2 (right) is connected through the blue/yellow wire;
  • 2 coming out - left coil powers 1 & 4 while right coil powers 2 & 3;
  • 1 &4 will fire together; so with 2 &3.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
