We are leaving the stock coils in place. Too much labor to tear them out. New coils are going in the right side fairing just above the fresh air vent ducting.
Although I don't have the mounting plate finished, the installation of this kit will be much easier than the GL1100.


Not sure how it could be any easier...

Here is the GL1500 project. GLWrench (Louis) repainted, rewired, and stuffed a 1500 engine into this Cushman.

That is COOL!!!!

I have been watching a lot of Micro tractor pulling on the University of YouTube recently and I think an 1100 motor would be great for that purpose! Just saying...

Louie built 3 identical Trucksters with GL1100 engines but there was no way to back them up. With the 1500 it now goes in both directions!
We've had it running before, but its headed to a show tomorrow as an introduction for the GL15 ignition kit.

Not really. We've never installed on a bike, just the Truckster. We didn't take pictures (shame on us).
Next week we'll begin putting into one of their GL1500's with a sidecar and I will be taking pictures during the process.

Here are a few pictures of our C5 ignitions.

One picture shows our current GL1000 kit using a "replica" of the Honda points cup, but larger diameter to fit our C2 ignition.

Another picture shows our first GL kit using an automotive D2 ignition module with black composite cover. It works well but customers wanted a more traditional look.

The third picture is our GL1500 kit, which is currently installed in the Cushman Truckster I shared pictures of the other day.

We also have the GL1100 kit which hides inside the stock Honda ignition area at the rear of the engine.

Dan has installed our Gen 2 ignition onto his GL1200 with positive results.

If things go as planned, those attending the Midwest meet & greet can witness the global introduction of another Goldwing product. If you miss it, I will share with everyone after returning home.

Does the motor have to be removed on a GL1100 for the C5 ignition?

Motor out or swing-arm out... unless you put a 1000 camshaft on the 1100 head.

Even still, pulling the motor is well worth the effort for the gains that you get from this ignition system!!!!

I have dyno info and a few C5 users have mileage data. I don't share dyno runs anymore but we typically see 8-12% improvements. Much of the improvements has to do with your current state of tune, and how well you dial in carbs after installing the C5.

I can tell you starting is easier, idle is much smoother, and all around performance is brisk. Much of this is thanks to multiple sparking and our coil design.
