Stick coils?

Just wondering if anyone on this site has switched their coil and wire system over to stick coils from a newer CBR. I did the swap on my CB-1 and they really perk up the ignition system. It's an easy conversion and I might just try it out on my 919. Only issue might be tank clearance on #1 piston so I'll have to sort this out.

there is zero point. The stock coils are PLENTY hot enough, switching to a coil on plug system is pointless and would just cause headaches.

There isn't any point to converting to coil on plug unless you have an ECU that can take advantage of the additional feature it offers. We don't.

What would be the advantages of a coil on plug that you speak of? Only thing I can think of is being able to control spark individually on each cylinder. Which given the design of the crank on almost all inline 4s is useless for more than 2 coils

You can fire more than twice per combustion cycle per cylinder with a coil on plug setup. But you'd have to have an ECU that supports it, and even then mostly it just reduces emissions. The other advantage is that you can fire one cylinder independent of another, do completely independent timing - but again, need an ECU that supports it and we don't have one.

My 3 ZRX's have been switched to coil overs only to clean up space and ease of working on.

No other reason.

Her 919 will stay as is.

Her 9nr only has 2200 miles on it and I have left it alone




With the minor exception of block off plates, braided brake lines with that fancy line clamp, center stand, little Honda windshield, exhaust bracket fix, 1 inch risers, polished wheel lips and Yosh slip ons.

I did it for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i installed coils from a 929, it ran for a few seconds.
factory ecu will not support this installation.
neither will one from a 929.
only way is a custom ecu
recently noticed Carmo in the back of Cycle World mag,
at that time i contacted them in Holland,
can do but $$$$$ actually they can do anything.
