Ignition coils
« on: March 12, 2018, 04:40:30 am »
Had to replace the front two recently - not cheap! Anyone know if other Yamaha coils will fit eg  the R6 coils look the same ( come up as a different part number but you never know...) and there’s plenty of them about

Good idea to know a possible compatible coil.  Ours is made my Mitsubishi.

If some one have access to a Service manual for R6 than the primary and secondary coil resistance values can be compared to ours.

Good question, as many parts are shared by more than one model. Unfortunately, the part number only shows application to the Super Tenere.

I bought mine quite cheap from a place in Cardiff that used to advertise them on ebay. I just searched ebay but couldn't find them. If I can find an old receipt/name of the shop I'll post it on here

Not positive, but I think the reason the part number is exclusive to the Tenere is because it is the only coil that gets bolted in place. Other coil sticks "may" be the same length, and have the same rubber caps, but have no way of bolting them in place. Having said that, I still wonder why they do it that way. There is no way in hell those things are going to pop off by themselves if they weren't bolted down. Kinda redundant if you asked me...

In addition Yamaha even tells you to loctite the bolts. I never have used it myself though.

Every single automotive application I've ever seen or heard of is bolted down. Though a small possibility, the heated air trapped in the boot could push an unbolted coil off the plug.

Pretty common in the MC world to just push the coils on the plug.

I looked up the OEM price; $95.00.  Rocky Mountain has them listed at even more, $104.00.  I checked on Amazon, and found this:

https://www.amazon.com/Ignition-Yamaha-XTZ1200-2012-2018-23P-82310-00-00/dp/B07B2Z82SK

$39.00.  I bet that price would be hard to beat.  I think I'll bookmark that vendor for future reference.

Found the box and receipt!
Cardif Motorcycles Ltd, Cardiff CF11 8JQ

The receipt says Yam Xt1200Z ABS/USB  23P1 22010 Ignition Coil Jap

The box says

Tour Max  High Performance Equipment 713418 Plug Hole Ignition Coil IGN-218P   Made in Japan


The bike was very much better for fitting them.
