inevitable question that will come is how this might apply to 1100s?
then if if does apply, would it be a better way to go than the 'neon' upgrade option that is also well sorted out
I have no side by side comparison,
But I can say it is cheap, with many Parts available, and EASY to do mod,
I did not have to make any brackets, I used the brackets that came with my bike, the stock oem coil mounting brackets, this is a simple bolt on mod./upgrade
Mounting was very easy and as it was with OEM mounting, coil wires are included, just cleaned them up using some old Brake fluid I had after draing brakes on one of my bikes, it make the rubber softer, and removes most if not all the dirt from the coil wires to make them look much better than when you receive them, near new, depending on how long you leave on the brake fluid on before wiping it off.
GL1500 production date; 1988' to 2000' a 12 year run, this provides many used parts.
It was a upgrade to my 83' GL11, as I have a significantly hotter spark now than i had before the GL1500 coils, that is a noticeably hotter spark when looking at spark plug fire jump, and in starting, and riding performance.
