Try putting the working coil onto the side which isnt working if it then works then you need to replace the duff coil. if it isnt working then you need to check the wiring to that coil with a multi meter

What is the proper firing order of spark plug wires on a 1982 Kawasaki kz1000?

The coils are for cylinders #1 & #4 on one coil and #2 and #3 on the other, the wire connects to the coil and then to the spark plug. Only wire length dictates what port on the coil to use. Just make sure #1 and #4 are on the same coil and you will be fine.

I have a 1982 Kawasaki GPZ750 R1 and about every 1000 miles the right side ignition coil goes bad. I have replaced it once and the previous owner replaced it several times. The coil will only last for...

this shouldnt be an ongoing problem, coils occasionally fail, but not usually again and again.
Check all connections.
check battery voltage when running 13-14 v
When you replace the coil, replace the plug caps as well( they have a resister in them)
Make sure the spark plug gaps are correct

Where can i find the coil

Are you wanting to buy a new one? or are you looking for its location on the bike?
Most medium to large cities have kawasaki dealers you can buy a new coil through.
If you are looking for the coil location on the bike, just follow the spark plug cable back from the spark plug, it will go to the coil.

Only 2 cyl. fire #2&#4.

Am I to assume your saying that no.s 2 & $ are fireing if so it would appear that the the coil that fires 1&2has given up the ghost the easiest way to check this is to simply swap the coils around that is 2&4 to fire 1&3 etc if it starts to run on 1&3 theres your solution of to the dealers purchase a new set of coils yes I said a set because you can bet if ones failed the other wont be far behind before it to fails
