    Interested

    How about an update on GSXR model, year, source, fitment issues, ht terminal compatability, etc?

    I'm sure this has been written about but a review might be useful.

    How did you attach the coil wire to the GSXR coil?

    hey guys, sorry for the late reply. Haven't been around for a long time. It is very easy to mod. Just take that plastic ring and clip at the spark plug wire out and squeeze this end to make it fit into the GSXR coil. Everything else will fit perfectly.

    Now for the 2 power wires, it doesn't really matter which wire goes on which side of the gsxr coil. Test them and if they show code switch them.

    Yes, and they came with the cap that plugs into the top of the coil.

    Do you have a coil that you think is bad or are you just replacing as regular maintenance. Keep us updated with any improvement in performance or mileage.

    My coils seem to be working fine. I have heard about enough coil failures that I feel I should replace them before I am stranded somewhere.

    I have never heard of any coil failures with suzuki so maybe these coils will be more reliable.

    Just checked eBay...lots of GSXR coils...cheap! Does year, GSXR model make a difference? Looks like many made by Denso.
