Any body ever heard of coils "made by Hansh/n in Japan". Im gonna get coils for my CB750 and there is a set on ebay from Hansh/n that the guy says are performance coils. I googled them but found nothing.

Also, should plug caps come on and off from the stock wires?

I got nothing...

but ask him what the specs are on the coils and I can tell you what stockers put out or are close to.

Go to z1 enterprises and buy their dyna coils and a dyna S ( or the 2000 if you have the scratch). #1 they are matched components and #2 they are cheaper than those packages you see on ebay.

Seriously I sat down and looked for the best price on coils, wires, igniton, etc and Z1 still came out cheaper than even used stuff on ebay.

I looked them up though and I can tell you the 1 thing I don't like about them - the wires are not replaceable, just like the stockers. I also don't like that they have NGK boots (indicating that the wires were already clipped once). If you can get them for $20 then go for it, but $90 is not worth it when $120 gets you new accels or dynas.

$384 and you get the Dyna 2000 reprogrammible igniton (replaces your points permanently and allows you to fine tune your ignition curves and add cool stuff like a shift light and rev limiter) qnd the coils as a package deal - worth every penny.

I am such a whore for Z1 right now.


Of if you really want to be different you can buy my ARD magneto for $600 and forget your coils all together (just kidding my ARD mag is not for sale).

i got my dyna 2K even cheaper....it was on sale at http://www.dynoman.net/ignition/dyna2000.html#cb750 but it seems like that sale is over. i think the 2k is the way to go. isnt the mag more of a drag thing anyway?

There is the right way, the wrong way and the british way to do anything!

When dynoman has his sales it is definatly a bargan. I really am jonesing for a 2k for one of my bikes.

I am not getting a kick back from z1 (I wish I was), jsut that modt of the cb750 parts usppliers started raising their prices but z1 has stayed the same.

A magneto is basically the only way to run these bikes without a battery. It is both a drag, roadrace, and extreme street thing. The over the top street cb I am building is going to run one (along with a 1036cc kit, carrilo rods, FCR carbs, you name it she'll have it). Also the mag itself is the same as a vw beetle mag so the parts common as well. A mag is more for reliability in high perfromance situations, because no matter what other problems you have it will keep putting out power as long as it is spinning. Another advantage is you can take the heavy stator off the end of the crank so your bike will rev faster. Some guys used to use them back int he day in conjuction with their alternator to run loads of accessories without taxing the charging system of the cb750 which is already frail.

5.0 ohm.

make sure they are factory coils though, it was popular for guys to put the 2.0 ohm DOHC cb750 coils on their bike or the GL1000 2.0 ohm coils (for some reason, I have no idea why, people thought this was an upgrade). If you have these coils (which look just like any other stock honda coils) they will burn out your points faster than stock and lead to crappy running. However some of the older electronic ignitions could handle this (like the martek440 and some of the older boyer brandsen i think)

Dyna recommends a minium of 3.0 ohm coils (don't go any lower numerically) for their setup.

I think Geet is Z1's beotch!!!!

Really inexpensive Dyna coils:

The green ones are the 3.0 Ohm coils and are what you need with a Dyna set-up. I think black are the 5.0 Ohm and the ones recommended for a points iggy.

If you could find the room under the tank you could always go old school and wedge four Bosch Blue 003 coils in there. Or two sets of these:

The consensus is I have heard is that 5 ohms is what you want.
And it works with the DynaS conversion which and use the stock coils anyway. Going to 3 ohms taxes the stock charging system.

I haven't swapped out my coils yet but that is on the list of
things to do.
