I had some trouble with my 81 gl 1100 having no powerand at first thought it was carb trouble. I found that the coil for number 1 and 2 cyclinder is not working . The other coil is fine . Can you replace one coil or do you have to replace both ??
You said #1 and #2. Is it specific to just one head? Check your spark ignotors, swap them around. Does this make them work and the others not? Check your plug wires also. I BELIEVE the way they go on the coil is from RIGHT to LEFT is 1, 2, 3, 4, and the firing should be 1, 3 , 2, and 4. Someone please help if I am wrong on this. (Make sure to Write down the way they are now before you do swap them around) . I do not want to tell you wrong.
#1 is on the front of one head and #2 on the front of other , but both run off the same coil. Tried changing the wires that feed the other coil to this one and coil fires so it is not the coil. Going to check wires etc later.
I have a set of spare cdi's (Ignitors) for a 1980 GL1100 Standard, but one went out with me. Should work on your GL1100i. The good one should not be hard to find. They are yours for the shipping. Please PM your address.
If they have MPS 200 on them I would love to have them and you just became my best friend. How much postage would it be to Summerside Prince Edward Island Canada so I make sure its enough.Also can you give me a address to send to. My e-mail [email protected]
