Default Stick coils for the CBR1000F?

Hey Knowledgable ones.

Is it possible - or has anyone fitted stick coils to the CBR1000f. Did a quick search on the forum and only came up with something for the 600.

I fitted a set to my Kawasaki GTR1000 about 50,000 km ago and swear by them - see Stick coils - A "how to" for the GTR1000 in 1000GTR Technical Discussions Forum

Just wondering, as I'd like to do the same for the Honda if possible.

Cheers, SB

Hey:

Yes, get them from any year CBR1000RR the newer the better. They work just fine and give a little better starting. only issue was I had to make some bigger coil seals on the top or could have just cut up the old ones to work. I have had them awhile (5yrs) on my hotrod LSR CBR. No issues and cheaper than a set of reg coils if doing some good shopping on ebay.

Thanks Dub,

I had a quick look last night on Fleabay but nothing available in Australia, and a few in the States. What sort of money will you pay in the states for the 4 coils and a loom?

Cheers, SB

From my perspective and experience having fitted them to the Kawasaki GTR1000...............................not a thing!

Only positives - better starting, better spark delivery, some say a mild increase in power (probably through better, more consistent spark)

so does this replace the coil and spark plug wires and gives them individual spark?

Yes - it's a seperate coil pack for each cylinder/sparkplug.

See the link in post #1 for the conversion I did on a Kawasaki GTR1000 - lots of pictures and diagrams of how to do it.

Cheers, SB
