    ignition coils

    hey, i was looking at my hawks rear ignition coil, and i started thinking..

    in the last 20 years, there have been huge advancements in ignition coils.. we can now make coils that are smaller, lighter and still more powerful then what we have stock.

    anyone know of any smaller upgrade coils? and what wires go with them?

    i dont have a problem with changing any wiring connectors or making custom spark plug wires.... just as long as the coil works with the stock ignition, and has the same two connecting wires to it...

    the real benefit i see to this is that with a smaller coil, i can completely move the coil location.

        ok mr hord, how much are your Nology mini coils? do they work with the stock CDI? i like the mount, nice and simple.

        ok, poking around online, i think that those coils are a one plug per coil style... will i need 4 coils? or are you running only one plug per cyl?? or some kind of Y-split plugwires??

          Those are Nology (actually made in Germany by PVL) 3.0 ohm, twin-tower coils. ~$75 each, if you want them. Work just fine with the OEM CDI or my programmable. I am testing Daytona Twin Tec's on my Ducati. They are Nology/PVL clones made in China and as such are a bit cheaper. Neither come with plug wires but both come with all connectors needed to wire them up. I'm using NGK plug wires.

          That bracket you see is just a simple aluminum rectangle with holes drilled in the back for the frame posts to pass thru, and the sides drilled/tapped to mount the coils. I need to lathe up a couple small spacers for the bolt holes, but other than that, pretty easy.

            yea, i did a lil more research.. the PC30 coils... and you can get them with dual terminals for the hawk..

            when i start stepping up the power in the hawk, i'll probly do it, but with my current goal of just riding the thing this summer, its just overkill... im better off spending 130 on things it needs.... lol, project is big enough as it is......

            dont be surprised if i buy it next winter... along with the rest of the engine stuff i need. lol

              They are not a must have by any means, only reason I switched was so I could package everything in the front of the bike.
