1000 coils are VERY easy to swap with our kit and use the stock aluminum "T" mounts with 10mm spacers.
1100 coils require different mounts that I've been making by hand, but have ideas on a universal mount that could also fit the 1200 frame.
1200 coils I have never done because we never made a kit for them.

The worst coils are those of a GL1500. It takes several hours just to get them out (our kit will leave them in place).
We plan on mounting coils in the right side fairing, in front of the storage compartment, and providing a wire harness to bypass all Honda OEM wiring.
I'm trying to find a Valkyrie owner locally so we can figure out that mount as well.

Today in between a million other projects I sat down and figured out coil mounts. The GL1000 uses the stock mounts and we send 10mm spacers that work very well. On the GL1100 It requires a funky offset coil mount and I am not even sure about the GL1200.

The 1000 coils sit vertically behind the steering head and the 1100/1200 coils are almost horizontal.

By modifying a coil mount I use for another kit, I had success with the 1100 frame. It also fit my GL1000 but the airbox snorkel would have to be trimmed off. Now if someone can send me a free GL1200 frame I'd be set.

My plan is to have one kit for all three models (1000, 1100, 1200) so we don't have to mess with knowing which frame you have.

Zip ties work (I've done it also) but customers won't accept that as a permanent solution. We use rubber dipped frame clamps in some kits but I'm not sure it could work on the Goldwing due to the complex frame shape and excessive wires.

I added a Plexifaring III to my bike last winter and it came with hose clamps to attach to the fork and/or frame. I cut some shrink wrap material and slid it on the clamp to cover the clamp before mounting and it came out real nice!

You bring up a great point. Coated clamps are very secure and sometimes I can't rotate a coil into position with the "death grip" from those clamps. We purchase them from Waytek, and great Minnesota company.

Here is the CB750 SOHC coil mounting (to get your creative juices flowing).

Maritime too! Stainless steel for no corrosion and tremendous vibration resistance which is a big deal when you cannot see your wiring chafing away and have a fire at sea!

Because of CGW support for his ignition kits, he is planning an exclusive unveiling for this Gen 4 kit near the end of February!

I will be contacting certain forum members to be part of this event, so stay tuned!

Can you hear the sound of a CNC mill running yet? I am thrilled to say "the order has been placed" and I'm letting Dan feed you information as it happens. He so deserves this. There is not ONE ounce of exaggeration when I say that without this forum's support we would have ended Goldwing ignition kits when the Gen 2 parts ran out (and Gen 3 parts have been so slow to arrive I about gave up).
Last month I was uncertain about investing the time/energy/resources to produce the Gen 4 kit.

A few PMs and phone calls from forum members made me realize this project had to move forward. Now I've pulled the trigger and there is no turning back. I won't sleep tonight....this is the largest investment I have ever made for any kit and I want to ride my Wing tomorrow but the snow is too deep. :yahoo:
