    GL500 plug/play NEW ignition coils?

    After the disco ball escapades (Bad Coil on Left Cylinder) , does anyone know the model/number of a good plug/play aftermarket coil set for a 1982 GL500 with TI ignition?

    I recall seeing a set of Accels on a GL500I, but of course I didn't get the model number. I have a spare used coil, but it's 30+ years old too. The bike is running great with the 2 coils off my parts bike, but I really wouldn't mind a couple of new ones instead if they're available.

    I've seen the Emgo's, supposed direct replacement, but Emgo doesn't exactly equal quality in any of their parts IME.

    I live on a one-way street that's also a dead end. I'm not sure how I got here, or how I'm going to get out.

    Any part numbers of one's you've had success with?
    None of them seems to list a specific coil for the GL500's among their single post coil applications.

    Ok are there some cheaper alternatives? I've read on here about some using ebay coils that are $15 or less each. But not sure which coil type I need for my 81 GL500, was told CX500 uses different kind because of the ignition type.

    Something like this is what I've seen on here while searching

    So what can I use in a TI ignition that's under $100. No cheap coils for it?

    this is a pain

    search amazon with this phrase

    3 ohm ignition coil

    you will find this type for 14.23 shipped

    you need 2 of them and you will need to make a plug wire

    and they are big but will WORK
