The bad part is they are saying 7 weeks out. We chose these because they are an excellent resistor with high parameters in a small package. This is what the final product looks like
Thanks Gannon
Hey Idaho

Any spare COP connectors to sell?
I've heard You bought them a lot

There's a list of "acceptable" COP's in the sticky about COP conversion in the electrical section.

They're all essentially the same apart from slight cosmetic variations. Some older Honda sportbikes(9xx series) use "long" style COP's, and while these will work, they're a PITA to fit on the Vmax motor. The "short" style are much more common and fit a lot better. The short style are widely interchangeable. Virtually every modern sportbike of any size or brand could be swapped. They're all very close to the same size, and all take the same connector.

Almost all the sticks out there are made by either Denso (says denso somewhere on the stick), or Mitsubishi(has the mitsu logo stamped on the top edge). Reports say the Denso's have a slightly higher resistance that's closer to stock, so possibly "better" for the TCI box, though I and several others have used Mitsubishi coils(mine are from a 2007 R6) to no ill effects.

You can find sticks on ebay for cheeeep, especially if you don't need the OEM harness to get the connectors using these adapters. Don't spend any more than $50. Do different searches...."R6 coil", "R1 coil", GSXR coil, Ninja coil, ect.

Got mine today. They look awesome very high quality and looks better than a factory assembly. Thanks for making these available Gannon.

Is there a step by step with pictures on this conversion ? Just more comfortable following along rather than just digging into the unknown...TIA

Duke, thanks for the comment, I sorry you didn't get the packaging that the rest will get. The packaging that I recieved in the mail today really makes them look good! I only have three sets left on this run. It will be another 5 weeks before a new run of resistors are available.
Thanks guys for all of your imput to make this happen
Gannon

this conversion has to be one of the easiest there is I think. With the exception of getting to the front coils. This very easy just unplug your coil from the factory harness. Plug in the harness conversion in its place. Remove the spark plug boot (from the spark plug) , that was on the coil you are working on. Then plug the other end of the coil conversion harness into the COP that you have purchased. Place new COP on the spark plug . Repeat for each coil
I hope I have made this a little clearer. I am not the most well known for a good road map.

And remember you don't HAVE to remove the front OEM coils, in which case you can discard 3/4 of the instructions
