anyone know the ohm rating on these coils? building a bobber for my nephew and want to relocate the existing coils. wires are molded into factory coil really limiting relocation. since it's dual fire was hoping to use a aftermarket single coil of like ohms. anyone made this switch with good results

Got a factory manual? It may have the ohm ratings.

I generally unhook the leads and measure the coil for primary resistance. If you don't have an ohm meter Harbor Freight usually has them on sale for less than $10.00 and gives them away every month or so. Generally points coils are around 5 ohms and non racing solid state are around 3.

thanks for the quick response guys. I'M reading 2ohms. across the coils. was hoping to use either a accel 2.3ohm or a blue streak2.7ohm. both are for dual fire with electronic ignitions. concerned as to if these would cause a problem with the Honda CDI unit .
