220 may be a bit much but i see some around the 150 mark, for example here:

these are from dynatek which is a reputable brand.

of course, you can search the web further. 20 or 30 dollares are at the low end... i have personally no experience with those cheap ones but most of the time, you get what you pay for.

I haven't gone back and checked, but I thought that the articles from the 650 forum listed a different coil. Maybe go back and check the links I gave you in your other thread, I could have sworn the coils were changed because there was talk of mounting issues.

But then again maybe I'm wrong. :o

turtle has concerns that the current coils may overheat - which also is an indication that they may not be the right ones.
i really can't give direct advice here on what is right or wrong as i'm not familiar with the 650 and this specific mod but it does sound like some more research is needed.

Thanks for the link flatlander, I ended up buying the gray 2.2ohm coils you linked. They look like space savers too.
