    You are sure ??
    The CDI coils have one wire for the 12 Voltage
    The TI coils have two wires.

    So this one will work...

    BUT.....

    The Ohm values must fit for the TI's

    As much I know the coils CDI/TI/CDI are also not changeable because the Ohm value/resistance is different.

    Wow those are pretty big. But I searched the way you said, and checked ebay. They only showed up as $39.69 each. At that rate I'll get some of the others you recommended, Nology or Dyna. Not too sure where I could fit 2 of those giant cools either.

    Are TI ignition bikes a rare thing? Just figured they'd be some chinese knockoff by now like the other coils. I think the Dyna coils you listed said they fit a 88-92-ish GSXR 750. So I searched for coils for that bike out of curiosity. I find coils for $29 each. I know I gotta get 2 still. I guess all 4cyl bikes have "waste fire" So I can just cap off one wire on each coil. May just give up and buy the others for $120-ish. Just wasn't looking to spend that much on some coils for my old GL.

    Lots of ti. Bikes the issue is that a lot of them are 4 cylinder they use 2 dual output coils

    Those you can find easier

    Single post coils. Are hard to find

    Ok, so I get this out of the way for future questions. How do I tell if a bike is TI or CDI? I mean not on just our bikes.

    I'm pretty sure I have a pair of double wire coils from my 97 Yahama YZF 600R. Maybe I'll try experimenting with them. Capping off a wire on each and putting them on the GL. Or are there exact Ohm, or something I need to specifically look for?

    Won't work, two lead coils need both leads to complete the circuit so they can fire.

    Just to clarify, there needs to be a complete circuit or no current will flow. In a 2 lead coil, each plug wire is connected to one end of the coil and the circuit completes through the engine block.

    I wonder if it would be possible to use a 2 lead coil by grounding one lead? It would work in theory but has anyone tried it?

    Grounding one lead just grounds out the coil as a whole. It needs the gap so it can spark both ends at the same time. That's the way a wasted spark system works.
