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.

Oldsmobile stalls/idles rough under 1,100 rpm. Otherwise runs fine while driving.

oh the fun of throwing parts at a car! i feel you ive been there before. have you tried testing the ignition modual? checked to make sure its getting fuel right? it could have a seized injector body. it could be a cam or crank sensor but usually those only run the ignition up to 500-900 rpms then the ECM takes over. other than that it kinda sounds like you may be loosing cylinders. you might try a compression test. i know this isnt a solution per say but ive been stuck before i know fresh ideas can help

95gmc sonoma the right bank 2-4-6 sprakplugs are all black has a miss could it be a cracked plenem,leaky ex manifold?

Could be bad wires,cap and rotor.Bad injectors.Upper plenum gasket bad.I have had a few of these with a bad upper plenum gasket.A good way to check for this is spray some brake cleaner around the upper plenum area and if it is bad you should feel the engine smooth out or change in engine rpm,s.Let me know what you find Good luck.

2000 ford windstar stalls at 2000 rpm some times dies i no its not the dpfe

Good Evening, I have had a few of these on the car lot and noticed a few inherited problems that can cause what you are talking about. First thing is a coil going bad, second is those darn plenum and intake gaskets which cause a vacuum leak which causes the engine to develop a miss not only at low rpm but also at higher. I cannot say that it is your problem without coding it, but give you some insight into possibilities. Hope this helps.

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

The car idles rough at low idle speed approx 1000 rpm or less it smoothes out at about 1200. once engage the drive train it realy miss and stalls and it doesnt matter if it forward or reverse it stall and...

You probably are developing serious ignition problems.Your coil pack may be becoming in jeopardy as open plugs wires will re-route KV's straight through the module to ground as this high energy goes to the easiest path. I would isolate possible dropping cyclinders by pulling ignition wires while looking for corrosion on the coil ends and oil soaked or faulty(cracked) spark plugs on the engine/spark plug side of the wires.The upper engine mount(torque axis) may be sagging and will exaserbate this condition as well.Here are 4 possible parts that could get you feeling brand new

1-16167763 -coil module
1-21024814-plug wire set
4-21025103-spark plugs
*1-21022185-torque axis mount with 3 studs(11518883)

You need to have it scanned to find out why the check engine is on first thing. Local parts stores normally will do this free of charge.

04 explorer running bad

If this is a coil pack ignition system (no spark plug wires, just a coil pack on each plug), this sounds like you may have a coil pack that is going bad. Do you have a check engine light on? You might also think about having someone take a look at your fuel injectors, if one or more isn't firing this will cause a miss that will sometimes seem like a faulty spark plug. Hope this helps.

2008 GSXR 600 Won't idle when the temp is real cold

Check your injectors man... Sounds like you have a nasty clog... Other than that the only thing I can guess would have to do with this would be check the fuel lines the spark plugs and fuel pump... If nothing is wrong your best bet would be getting it to a shop...
