Default Need Help

I've got a 1976 Honda xl250 and I need an ignition coil or one that can work. I need some advice on what I can do.

Dear Konfused in Karlsbad:

They say you can find stuff on the internets. So I cut and pasted your sentence above into this thing called Google. It only found 479 sites that had information on your coils or had the part for sale. Here's the link. Put your mouse pointer on it and click, and then when the Google page comes up, you can click on the blue line that seems to have the coil for sale.

Happy Shopping!

It would have been a bit of a help to mention something about that, instead of appearing like the typical guy who comes on here looking for help that JUST DISCOVERED this "Internets-Thingie".

Coils used in a typical Kettering Ignition all work the same way, regardless of "brand". Have you considered adapting one from another bike? It may not be a direct fit, you'll have to be clever to overcome mounting-issues, but it would get you going.

Default It's too bad

XL 250 - The XL Board

This place probably has the answer. It's too bad someone's had their feelings hurt. Between you guys and S2 everyone's gonna hate us, sniff.

Wasn't the feelings thing covered previously.

I just looked over all the posts and I don't have a clue what he's talking about. Even Ken was fairly mild. All but two of the posts are attempts to help. Eff 'em if they can't take a joke. Who the heck do people think they are?
