Do you know, I went back and looked at that photo again. It's been so long since I did mine, that that minor point eluded me!

Great that you identified the potential problem Jarvid.

Cheers, SB

As luck would have it, I had good length, turned the coils pointing forward and problem solved. No cutting and re-soldering. Total success!!!

Stick Coils Upgrade Ride Report:
I finally was able to ride the bike today with the stick coils modification.
One word:
WOW!!!
I am a skeptic by nature and by indoctrination. Any time I hear anecdotes of mods or upgrades that improve performance, I don't believe them unless accompanied by a dyno to prove.
I still do mods without evidence, because of the cool look, sound factor or practicality.
What I notice today:
1- Super easy cold/hot start
2- Very stable idle
3- Smooth acceleration through the revs
4- Faster throttle response, almost rheostat like.
5- Improved MPG, flogging it I usually get 42, today 45!!! (not that it matters at all to me)
6- Ignition breakage at high RPM I was having is gone.
This upgrade is no gimmick, I noticed the above, not placebo effect.
If on the fence about this upgrade, do it and judge for yourself. My bike is super well maintained, so it was not like I did a carb tune, spark plugs, air filter and then rode it.
Thanks to all that made the suggestion, listed parts and wrote DIY threads.

So might as well join the "Stick Club".
First impression from the mod, It starts and idles .
I will wrap it up later and post a follow up pic.

PS Yup she's a "Shake and Bake" (California) bike.
