What is this, 1976 gl1000

Right next to ignition coils/ ballast, it was very hot, removed, cleaned terminal/ connectors and put it back, still gets hot. Is it normal for it to get hot ?



It’s on a 1976 gl1000 with electronic ignition, right now fires up only on one cylinder, troubleshooting and thought of asking if this unit is causing this

Thanks

that is a heavy ceramic coated resistor used to drop the voltage to ignition coils sometimes,


and yes, it can get hot enough to burn your fingers.


Depends on how much current is being pulled thru it.


Used to see them a lot on 6 volt cars converted to 12 volt lights and generator/alternator.

The GL1000 has a resistor in series with the coils, as you may see in the attached pict. It's standard in all 1000'.
Check if the OEM coils have been changed; if it's the case you may not need it.

I just regrets the things I haven't done.
