Jeex Mike, don't tell me you got one of those too?? A bunch of years back a buddy went to clean out a barn, as in they paid him, including "some kind of old rusty motorcycle." Yup, while I would have found a beat up old Honda, Craig came home with and old Beemer running a 40 hp VW. The clutch cable was gone, maybe why it was parked, but we got it running in an afternoon. 'Had dual Solex's, straight pipes, sounded great and ran like stink.

Sport bike? Canadian?

For about a year I worked at Polaris in what became the Victory motorcycle group. A sportbike was talked about but never built - it was going to be a triple BTW.

And as already mentioned, Polaris is an American company. Headquarters is in Minnesota. Bike engineering started out in Wisconsin and moved to Minnesota a few years ago. Some of the manufacturing is done in Iowa. They do have a facility about ten miles south of Canada in Roseau, MN, but that's as close to being Canadian as they get.

Default Electrical question/ help

Alright, I have an ignition/electrical question for you motorcycle guys (but could also be related to cars).

My CB750's coils, I believe, have a rating of 4 or 5 ohms and I'm interested in throwing on a set of newer model, hotter sparking coils. The new coils have a rating of 2.5-2.8 ohms but will be eating up my new points left and right.

Here's the question: Is there a device that can be installed to allow a lower ohm resistant coils to work on my bike?

If it is a single cam motor with points you could get away with running some dyna 3 ohm coils but prob nothing less as the coils swill prob run to hot. I would think you would want to go with a Dyna S igntion if you are wanting better spark getting rid of the points would help. i fyou really need alot of spark you could get a dyna 4000 or 2000 box the 2000 takes 2.2 ohm coils and the 4000 takes .7ohm but that is prob overkill for a stock motor if that is what you have

Thanks for the reply.
I've read up on the Dyna coils but they are out of my price range, plus I know for a fact that the Dyna 3 ohm's need the electronic ignition set up. I'm staying with the stock points set up (spent $50+ on an OEM points plate not too long ago and don't want to spend more money to replace it). I know the 2-3 ohm coils that I want to buy will be rough on the points but produce a way better spark.
I was hoping to find a contraption/device that will allow me to run those coils with my points set up without the headache of burning the points up.

I'm still clueless as to whether the stock coils I have now are above or below the 2-3 ohm range. Below perhaps? This shit is confusing... but thanks for the help anyway.

Are you a member of forums.sohc4.net ? There is a guy there that sells a transistorized ignition system. His name is Hondaman and people swear by them. Supposed to make your points last nearly forever. That is the place to get all info for a cb750, 500, 550, 650 350... nearly any old honda.

I thought bug lite was a beer. How 'bout the front end? I'm thinking that an early bug headlight as part of a fairing would look pretty trick. No seriously, or have I (yet again) missed something?
