1987 Slabbie Electrics

Hi,

Restoring a 1987 1100 H and after a bit of a steer on electrics.
The clutch and brake lines were stock and cracked so replaced with braided lines, now worried about spark plug cables, connectors and coils etc..

What should I replace and where can I get them?

Re: 1987 Slabbie Electrics

dyna mini coils are a good replacement (3 ohm) , you will need to make mounting brackets.

Re: 1987 Slabbie Electrics

Brakes and lines that have your safety factored in, I'm all a go if restoring to drive frequently.

But is the bike showing signs of misfire, dewy mornings rumbling, or after rain or bike wash stumbles? Is it a daily or sunny day warrior that is running well currently? Avatar looks completely stock down to exhaust, looking to keep it as close as possible, or restoring with mods?

Re: 1987 Slabbie Electrics

No sign of misfire thus far not that I'm out in the rain often.
Not a daily ride, weekend and bike rally warrior, I have a 7 day rally coming up that will test this out I guess. Last year we had some rain, hail, and ice -11 deg c

Ill look at the dyna coils and find some new leads
