Hayabusa's also run the same Denso coils so they should fit too.

Haven't seen the R6's

Just an update on what stick coils can be used:

CBR1000 are longer than you need - they still fit and work but you need to pull down the sealing grommet and they are about 25mm longer than CBR600's

These are ideal for my ZZR and ZRX motors though :smt003

You'll most likely find that ZX12-R's are the same length as the CBR1000's.

zx6r c2h coils fit straight in, just trim the rubber collar for a perfect seal.

Is this a worth while mod to do if you have problems starting? is it basicly like using better HT leads?

it completely does away with the HT lead there is NO ht lead with this mod

The supply to the stick coils is 12v and it is stepped up to high voltage within the stick coil in the same way it happens in the standard coils.

HI,

Well I can certainly say that this mod works! even on the L model! As MM did do the mod on a H.

Airbox doesn't even twat the sticks so it's all good under there, just replace the OEM coils with 4 penny washers and 4 bolts to hold up that infill bracket.

Don't really notice any much more difference apart from a much more smoother idle. I only did this mod as I was sick of my coils leaking after replacing them 6 times! 3 new leads and 8 new caps! gave up in the end lol. No leaks at all with this mod so I take my hat of to you MM :smt002

Regards

Rich

Result ! - good to hear Rich :smt003

Can't say I have any desire to go back to coils myself and I've got a freakin box full of the fookers with quality HT's on them too :smt005
