Is there any list of which Goldwings use ballasted coils?

No list I'm aware of. I could only say with certainty the 83's had one.

Trying to decide which replacement coils to use...I remember someone suggesting the color of the cdi box had something to do with ballasted or unballasted coils?

1200 coils are 300 ohm and not ballasted. Lots of options.

1500 coils have been used, apparently available on line - smaller so some mod to the mounting arrangement would have to be done. Here are a site to read reference 1500 coils:http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/2-goldwing-technical-forum/497945-convert-4cyl-oldwing-coils-newer-gl1500-coils-hotter-spark.html

http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/2-g ... s-too.html

Accel coils - Accel 140403 coils and wires - are an alternative

ProFire coils as well - the fellows over on the CX500-650 Turbo forum have used these on ht efuel injected turbo bikes: http://www.nology.com/profiremotor.html

Dynatek Coils are used as well.

Cheers

So by choosing a coil with a lower resistance than 3.0 (say .50) we could overheat the ignition module box so we would have to add in 2.5 ohm ballast resistor.

Been thinking about using Neon coils on my 1200 but the 1200 coils are 3.0 primary resistance and the Neon coils are 0.61. I have been lead to believe that using a coil with insufficient primary resistance can cause the ignition module to overheat and misfire until it cools down again, or fail prematurely.....

Any thoughts about adding a wirewound resistor(s) to the coil pack to cause resistance to be about equal to the original coils, and preserving the ignition module?

Basically adding a ballast resistor? I believe that those bikes with them include a bypass circuit for hotter starting spark.

Yes a ballast resistor cause a .61 coil vs a 3.0 coil because coil with insufficient primary resistance can cause the ignition module to overheat and misfire until it cools down again, or fail prematurely.....
