Talking So I did the pick up Coil Mod... & WOW!

Ok, I wondered how much this could effect the bike. I started last night, hot sweaty & tired I got frustrated when the bike didnt start. It turns out I flipped the coils in the process. I corrected the problem this evening & I took her out for a spin. I had my wife go with me so I could get a good feel how she (Scarlet) would react under a good load. (not that she's big in any way, but to see the responce in a 2 person up situation. She was over my shoulder! lol)

Now to mention as a note, after the ear shave & rejet I noticed a sluggish response when gettin into it. The responce now is amazing! I cant wait to go for a longer ride!!!!!!

To any one who might be concidering this mod I would highly suggest it.

Here's one link

Here's another link.

Each of these are slightly different but give you the same end result.

I bought my bike at the end of the Fall last year, and did this mod over the winter, before I had the chance to put even 50 miles on the bike. The previous owner said it could be a little fussy starting hot, but I have had zero problems. I also installed the plugs people recommend here, and when hot, the bike starts the instant the button is pushed... no gas, no anything. Just, bam... and it's running.

My pickups were at 0.040" or greater. I gapped them them between 0.020" and 0.024". From memory, I left the locating pins, and clearanced the pickup coils by grinding them a bit, and opening up the bolt holes a tad. They are very secure at their new location.

The R/R was also relocated, and is going to be replaced with the MOSFET unit, as it's the brains of the operation, and a good one of these, along with good connections, is paramount to good stator life.

Good Luck!
