From where did you source the Eldor coils?

thanks

I bought mine off of ebay. I bought a set of 4 from someone, and sold the other 2 coils to someone else off the board.

Depending on the price of the coils it can be done without spending too much money, especially if you can split the cost with someone from here.

All I can seem to find is used coils out of an RSV4, 2 coils for $84US. On Ebay there doesn't seem to be anything with a matching number. Does anyone know what car would use the same coils?

cheers

The 11-17 Tuono shares the same coils. I got mine from a 2013 Tuono.

Of course ebay prices are always changing.

Not sure if they are used on any car. Only other option is to order OEM at $80.85 each from AF1 racing. If you order new OEM just get 2 long lead P/N: 857501.

Working my way towards the coils

Just spent the last 1.5 hours working my way towards the coils. Fuel tank is now off and the coil on the vertical cylinder is visible. Next to come off is the airbox, can it be harder than the fricking fuel tank???

Nothing easy so far, even the fairing nuts had been over tightened when the bike went in for its 18000 mile service(last time thy were off). Spent 20 minutes just getting them off, more than half of that trying to find a wrench to hold on to the nuts. Turns out a 15/16" fits, I don't have a 24mm wrench. The 8mm nuts on the fuel pump cover were a challenge and resulted in only 1 skinned knuckle. The 3mm hex heads holding the little plastic panels on the side underneath the rear seat were also unbelievably tight...on and on!

The easiest things to undo were the 5mm hexheads holding the front of the tank. They actually popped right off. Once I got those undone I was able to wiggle the tank off.

I'm glad I have a new air filter on hand cause i don't want to this again for a while!

Now for a cup of coffee and a sugar hit before the airbox removal!

wait a minute

I can see both coils now and Ithink I can change the air filter without removing the airbox...whew, that was close!

Pulling the tank when changing the air filters and replacing the clutch was way more difficult than it should have been.Guess that's what happens when you stuff 10 pounds in a 5 pound bag. haha

I finally received my second Aprilia coil yesterday and lo and behold it has a lead about half the length of the other one.

The longer lead one is long enough for either cylinder but the other one will require some attention. I'm thinking I will snip the lead off one of the old Bera coils and splice it on to the short Aprilia one and use it on the vertical cylinder as that's more out of the weather, so to speak. Is it important that both coil leads be of equal length? I bought some of these, http://tinyurl.com/ydxttnpx and am eager to try them out.

Thanks to all for the help!
