Replacing ignition coils on CB500
« on: November 04, 2019, 12:48:30 pm »
Hi There,

Been lurking for some time. I purchased a 1972 CB500 that was stripped of its wiring harness, etc...

I have been looking online and in my Clymer manual for the answer and can't seem to figure out the following, my aftermarket coils have a positive and negative terminal and from what I understand the left coil fires 2nd and 3rd cylinders, and the right fires 1st and 4th..what I can't figure out is does the positive terminal of the coils go to the points (left yellow wire and right blue wire) or do I join them to the ignition switch?

I really appreciate any insight.
