Re: Brake union thread & sizes

Is it an old IP2 frame?if so,(if they are the same as a Classic wink) the coils should fit on the front of the frame, attached to the back of the engine air filter cover,(the coils have their own special little brackets Very Happy)J.B.

Re: Ignition and Voltage Regulator units.

Hi 588,are you sure about having to change the Coils and other things to fit a Minimag?'cos I'm sure I didn't have to change a thing on the Classic(I assume your bike is an air cooled model?)but if you contact Richard I'm sure he will put you right,SVF,J.B.

Ign:Coil testing

Hi guys,
I think I have a coil prob: on the Honda so a little advice would be appreciated.
The book says that a reading of 2.2 to 2.6 ohms for the primary end,I am getting a reading of 3.5/3.9 do's this indicate a new coil is required?(the secondary readings are fine)rgds,J.B.

Re: Which Battery?

Hi Rog: I'm sure you wont need a 30 amp/hr battery like the one on your Harley wink (that's about the same as I fit to my diesel Bora)seeing as a baby Harley has an engine thats almost twice the cc of any rotary,but I'm sure one of the lads will put you right,SVF,J.B.
