    Came across this pic (if it lasts, can't upload pic right now) and am real curious about this coil.

    I keep hearing bad stuff about the pair of BMW 6V coils for the R100T I am working on.

    Anybody know about this setup?

    Dynacoil good.

    I've just replaced mine. PO had installed the first one (manufacture date was 10/97) but it was mounted using a very vibration-prone technique (the venerable zip tie). Now I have a shiny new Aluimium bracket and coil from Rick? at Motorrad Elektrik

    I guess 7 years is the upward limit for zip ties- perhaps a layer of duct tape would have extended that :D

    I'm curious to see how this coil will hold up without the vibes of the first one- I'll check back in 2011 with an update...
