One of the coils on my D12 went out a couple of weeks ago. I called Nology in Ca. and they said there were two of them to fit my bike in the U.S., and they were at Fast Eddies. I called them and asked if he shipped to Canada, and he said sure, no problem. He sent me a paypal invoice and shipped them that day. He also called me back to offer expidited shipping so I could get them quicker, awesome customer service! He said they would be getting some in, in a couple of weeks, so they should be in stock by now.

My new coils will be in my hands tomorrow. Call it preventative maintenance. The pick-up coil is in transit(the fix!).

If you haven't upgraded to Nology coils, then you really should. It's hard to believe the difference between the profires and the Gill. The bike is a different beast all together, quicker cold starts, and away more performance. I don't know if I'm crackin up, but it even seems to sound different. It'll be the best $160 you'll ever spend!

Just be aware that PVL vs. Gill vs. Nology vs. Triumph doesn't really make all that much difference; it's time more than anything else, especially time with the motor running. The coils are in a bad place, and they get cooked.

Cheers,

Well my Trophy was feelin a tad blue till today. Dropped the new coils in, changed the pick-up and gapped it a tad under .7mm.

She never felt better.

The old Gill coils were really low on the secondaries at just under 2.5k each. The old pick-up metered good at running temp.

There certainly seems to be a situation widely experienced where bikes start & run reasonably well, yet are noticeably improved fitting new coils. Sometimes coil degaradation can be quite mild & barely noticed until coils are replaced. I've experienced this myself with a friend's Sprint. (But other problems, often carb issues, are very common causes of degraded bike/engine performance.)

It may well be that Nology are essentially no different in design to original coils. However it's likely that manufacturing methods & particularly materials, have improved since the 90s & I suspect it's this that gives them rock solid performance & reliability.

I use an aftermarket igniter (Ignitech) which we have proved (by measuring current waveforms) puts more energy thru' the coils (& thus to plugs). The Nology coils I've fitted are fully capable of handling this reliably.


98 Tbird tank/seat, Sprint fairing, ZX7R forks+Racetech Gold Valves, 08 ZX6R shock, short sw/arm, Alcon 6-pots, Ignitech+TPS, T'bike 3-1+Beowulf can, airbox/jet mods, tubeless wheel mod, lots :) per mile, 55mpg ave(imp)

You are correct on that regarding carb issues.

In my case it was a definite electrical degradation. As in complete loss of ignition sporadically. It was getting more frequent also.

Kit is correct about the bad location for the coils. The po had removed the cam covers and seal. All that hot air being washed over them probably was no help either.
