All the best,

I never set up the throttle control or a fuel tank so this is as far as I got.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for your quick reply.My unit is complete and has been running but the electrics have now given up the ghost.
I will be on the look out for a dual output coil at the various auto jumbles coming up soon.
Can anyone recommend any suitable dual output coils that I should be looking out for please?Presumably ones for motor bikes would do?
All the best,
Kev.

Hi Kev, as long as it fires both cylinders at the same time it should do the job.

Green Spark Plug have them but they are rather expensive...

Hi Steve ,
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly - much appreciated.
Yes they are a bit pricey! I think that I will have to wait and see what turns up at the jumbles or on the 'net.
All the best,
Kev.

If you know which model, try David Silver for NOS & copied Honda spares or another good source for classic Jap bike spares is Wemoto.
