Exactly the same ones I found and installed.

Haven't yet asked them to throw a spark yet, other pieces and parts are disassembled.

Just FYI -
  • The leads are 7mm and can be un-screwed from the coil should you want to run pretty yeller or other colored, higher quality wires
  • The stand-offs provided no longer match the photo and are not usable. Way too short.
  • The wiring loom female spade lugs fit horribly on coil male lugs. Too loose. I found new wire, made my own harness with correct fitting and snug lugs.
  • My measured primary resistance is 3.3, 3.4, 3.4 ohms
  • The spacing is 100m, correct fit original mounting location if desired.
My entire process documented here .

 Thanks for sharing.

I think I'm not going to change the 7mm cable, I'll use the one that comes mounted on the new coils.

Have you used the old spark plug caps or is it advisable to change them for new ones?

Used non-OEM NGK caps bought years ago. Tried to source new ones, still looking. Meantime, took the 5k resistor out, cleaned all contact points, measured resistance, re-assembled.



If you find a source, let me know?

I have four units of the XD05F model mounted on my bike.
and two short right-angle units of the model LD05F.

I found these models on Amazon

I wonder why, back a few months ago, I couldn't find any. Now they are available again. Thanks for the post, I appreciate your helping me spend money!

Greetings again.

Today I had time and I decided to go to the city of Barcelona, ​​to a motorcycle parts store.

The six NGK spark plug caps cost me 42 euros in total, much cheaper than on EBAY or AMAZON.

I have also taken the opportunity to buy a nice and loud set of HELLA brand horns for 16 euros that adapt perfectly to our motorcycle.
