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.

I am looking to buy my first bike and i am wonder is 28000 miles on a 2003 volusia is considered alot and how many miles do bike usual run for

depends on maker-german n italian rides r produced well--there r many companies thru out the world n much info available--air cooled engines wear out faster then liquid--always warm a bike up 1st n after a trip cool it down by ridin it slow-dont just shut it down-that helps alot--make sure proper oil is present-no ther not as long lived as cars

Kawasaki Z1000 died while on the hwy. Now won't turn over

Unfortunately without any repair experience this may be too much for your first time out. You have a fuel injected bike, while your battery may have power you really need to ascertain if you are getting spark to the plugs, then check if you are getting fuel. These are the first steps to isolate the problem even further you would need the results of these checks.
