    coil replacement

    I have 02 futura that is in need of a spark plug coil. Where do i get one and how much do they cost? Is there an alternative? My dealer wants $188 for it.
    Thanks

    Autoelectricsusa on EBay. $147.00 for two coils shipped. I bought them and they work great.

    These coils are indeed good, but they need different spark plug wires than OE. Magnecor seems to be the plug wire of choice.

    I just received a full set of four, and they included replacement plug wires with them. Magnecor's wires are definitely higher quality than OEM and the included replacement wires, but the replacements look on par with the OEM wires.

    I read through all the coil discussions on this forum going back over a decade. Some owners have converted Honda CBR coils; others have converted Renault Clio V6 coils. Frankly, none of those options appealed to me because I prefer a plug-n-play solution (and CBR coils are known to make the EFI light blink at high rpm).

    After much research, it became apparent that there is only really one simple alternative to buying factory ($$$) coils. The solution for owners in the USA is:


    • Coils from Auto Electrics USA on eBay. They come with wires that are probably sufficient but not fancy like...
    • Wires from Magnecor.com that are specifically made to fit Auto Electrics USA coils. Offered in three types. (NOTE: These are US part numbers. Europeans should order from Magnecor.co.uk catalog which has different part numbers.)
      • USA part number 2097 - Electrosports-80 (8mm wire)
      • USA part number 2797 - Electrosports-70 (7mm wire)
      • USA part number 2597 - KV85 Competition (8.5mm wire)



    Magnecor.com has no online shopping cart. To place an order you must email orders@magnecor.com and they send you a Paypal invoice. I found them to be very responsive via email.

    I recently ordered these items but have not installed them yet.

    Hope this helps.

    It would be great to see pictures of the coils and wires from Auto Electrics as well as the Magnecor wires once you receive them. I have a set of Magnecors that I ordered to use with the standard coils last year. It would be good to see if the Magnecor for these coils is the same as the ones recommended for the standard coils.

    Trumpet:
    They are not the same. The Autoelectric coils are originally coil on plug so Magnacore makes a special terminal for them. Worth the plug and play ease.

    This is the Coil and wire setup with zip ties (2) attached and sealed with silicone dielectric grease slathered on the inside of the boot to seal out the Noah level floods I drive to work in every day.

    There are a few of us owners that have gone the CBR route and yes, I have read about the flashing EFi light but I have not encountered this. What I have encountered is an unbelievable difference in the way the bike now runs - can't explain why but it's much much better!! than stock.

    The flashing is tough to nail because no codes will appear when not flashing. Flashing comes sooner with prolonged high revs, and sometimes can be duplicated revving to 4K in neutral.

    That is how I found my problem. With diagnostic connector shorted, I revved to the blink and a coil code appeared. Inspected and found a poor-fitting primary terminal at that coil, and once corrected, no more EFI blinky.

    In brevity, it ain't the Denso coils. It's the sloppy rewire job.

    So, where would I find instructions on replacing the coils? I see a lot of posts about the coils but I haven't seen a "How to".

    Replacing is fairly easy. Lift the tank, remove the airbox, remove the HT leads, unplug the coil harness connector, remove coil. Replace in opposite order.

    if you are converting to CBR or other than factory coils, heres a how-to.

    FYI the ebay coils from post #2 are temporarily shipping with the wires. I was told this is because they are out of stock in the US and are coming from the UK where they are sold with the wires. We'll see when they get here in a week or two but I sure hope so.
