Are the coils I bought, same as pictured above. But, mine came with an additional ground lead and a brass bracket mounted to each side of the coil with a bolt tacked onto the opposite side, facing away from the coil. If you have two of these coils, you can take the stock bracket apart and drill out the two little indentations and bolt the brackets to the stock bracket. Instead of sitting perpendicular to the frame, the new coils now sit parallel to it. I will take pictures in the daytime, as I have no flash. It looks pretty snazzy and you don't need anything to complete it except for drill bits. No extra screws/bolts/nuts/pieces of metal required.

they work great! Just have to find somewhere for the redundant ground, and clean the stock connectors for the coils. Other than that, Runs super!

And you don't have to move or fiddle anything to take them out while they are still on the bracket.

I'm thinking of a similar design as soon as my larger tank gets done. Probably a lot less bulky.

Remember these are only for the CDI engines,not the later Transistor Ignition engines.The CDI box is on top of the Rear guard under the seat.The transistor engines have two,"Sparker" boxes near the battery,
