Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Gold Wing
Old coils have wires that arc and 5000 OHM caps with blown resisters that can cause your problem. You could try replacing the plug caps on the end of the wires (they unscrew) (NGK about $20) Accel makes some bolt in replacement coils for the gl 1000 and gl1100 ($150 to $200). The kit comes with yellow wires and spark plug caps. I substituted snap on Ford truck wires because they were black. With this kit you need screw on tops for spark plugs (Honda snaps there caps on to the threaded plug top with out the screw on aluminum dome). Start your bike when it is dark out side and spray water on the wires to look for shorting. Also, does it cut out in the rain? Your cheapest fix would be to try the new plug caps first, unless of course, the wires are shorting.
