Coils are STUPID expensive. I found a "cheap" replacement at a place in MN but can't remember the name right now:( So far it's been working ok bur still set me back $80 or so.

You can use two coils and two condensers in place of the single double coil. If I were to do it again, I'd go the double coil route.

If you replace the coil please also replace the condenser. My condenser was bad and it took the coil with it.

In my opinion, any coil/s will work as long as the condenser matches the coil. So IF you choose to go twin coils you will need two condensers (one for each coil) that match their respective coil. Remove the condenser from the points housing and place the condensers directly on the coil. The Harley coil is a good choice it looks like. Though there must be something wrong as I always thought "HD" stood for"hundred dollars" as everything Harley is a $100 or more;):D:D
