|Crobins365||It could be the pick-up coils rather than the ignition coils. I have a set of pick-ups that I pulled off an '85. If you want, I can send them to you to test out - if they work, we can come up with a fair price (what's it worth to ya to have the '92 running? lol). If that's not the problem, you can send them back and I'll save 'em for someone else.|

|AceMcgyver||When it fails, which cylinder goes dead? If it's the front cylinder doesn't the front coil operate the tach? Has there been any work on the tach or behind the headlight where a wire could have gotten pinched?|

|AJCruzin||I'll check if I still have the CDI, but the coils themselves are the same. Let me double check if I still have them in my parts box and I'll get back to you.|

this problem you speak of sounds more like an ignition switch problem than a coil problem
the CDI and Coils either work or don't. No somtimes maybee... so i would check the ignition sitch, and make sure the wires on the coil primaries are tight

I already put on new plug wires. The coils themselves are both the same then I take it? I saw the wires were diff lengths and replaced them carefully w/ the matching ones in my new set.
Did it solve the problem when you did the swap?

We just replaced the front and rear coils/plug wires on my buddy's 750 last night, hoping to correct a similar "dying without warning" problem. His usually starts right up again, and it seems to only happen when the bike is in the process of warming up, 5 or 10 minutes into a ride.
They are different because the front one has one long plug wire to reach the right side plug. The rear wires are equal length. The front one is no problem. The rear is a bit of a bitch. Take the battery out, then once it is loose, turn it 45 degrees so the coil is verticle, and there is just enough room to slip it out the top between the frame and the battery box.

How cheap is cheap? Are they both the same or are there front and rear? I'm interested in getting them on hand so they are ready to go in if there continues to be a problem. Shoot me a PM w/ the details and we'll get the turkeys talking!
Got anything else I might need? Stock CDI even? If I could A/B it with mine and that fixes it I know to hit mine with a hammer!
