I just bought a new pair of Dyna Coils for my CB350 K3 but the coils are longer than the stock and i'm looking for advice on how to use the stock bracket. Anyone do this to their scoot yet?
I think have the mini ones. They are the Dyna Single Output DC10-1. Can you post the picture of the brackets that you made? Thanks!outobie said:are your dyna coils the standard ones or the new mini coils?
the standard ones need mounting bolts that go in vertically and the mini ones have mounting bolts that go in horizontally.
since you didn't mention that they are mini I'll assume you have the standard ones. I started out with the standard size dyna coils but ran into clearance problems mounting them under the tank since they are larger than stock. I have a CB200 tank on my CB350 so I'm not sure if the stock CB350 tank has the same issue but I suggest you check before you get too far into fabricating your brackets.
I used aluminum angle stock (2 sides of a square tube) to mount the coils on my project. if the stock tank provides enough clearance you can use two pieces of the angle stock (one for each coil). the angle stock can bolt to the stock holes in the frame so that if you looked at the angle stock from the front or back it would look like a "T" with the coil bolted to the horizontal part of the "T" and the vertical portion of the T bolted to the frame. this location allows the coils to fill the same void in the frame that the stock coils did. you need to measure clearance closely so the coils don't touch the tank or the frame. I made this exact same mounting system for my coils before I realized that my tank wouldn't go back on . (the CB200 tank has a cut out underneath on the right side but not the left)
If you don't have enough clearance for the tank then you can turn the "T" upside down.
Bill Moeller at Bore-tech let me trade back the large coils for the new minni ones and in the exchange I gave bill the brackets I had made so I can't send you a picture. If you are using the mini coild I can send you a picture of how I made the brackets for those...just let me kow.
You dont have a pic of your bracket do you? I'm just looking for ideas at the moment...thanks!Bird76Mojo said:It's been done and documented on here but finding it may prove to be pretty hard. Did you try a search??
On my CB450 I bent up some aluminum at work, notched it for clearance for the coils, and drilled it to mount to the frame, then drilled the holes for the coils to mount on it. You could probably do this with some aluminum angle "iron", a hacksaw, air powered cutoff wheel and a drill? Farm supply places such as Rural King/Tractor Supply have aluminum angle as do many others..
Others have used strips of aluminum that mount to the original coil mounts and extend out a little to let the longer coils bolt to the new aluminum piece.
That's the way I wired my KZ, just used the stock wiring to those two threaded holes. Not sure if there is any difference to the 350 though.kine8282 said:I read the instruction manual last night and it said that the coils are nt polarized...does that mean that I can cut the stock wiring and screw them on the to slots?
