Part: Honda CB350 / CB360 / CB450 Ignition Coil
Why You Need This: Ignition trouble shooting is a big part of getting your vintage Honda up and running properly. If you have swapped out the points and condensers on your Honda CB350, CL350 Scrambler, SL350 / CB360, CL360 Scrambler, CJ360 / CB450, CL450 Scrambler or CB500T and you are still having ignition problems it may be time for a pair of new ignition coils. Inevitably over time the coils get old and produce weak spark (dull white to yellow spark versus a bright blue / purple), become intermittent or just stop working all together. Fresh coils will yield a strong spark and make kick staring your Honda effortless. These reproduction ignition coils will fit the stock mounting brackets on your Honda CB350, CB360 or CB450 with no modification. Each coil includes a non-removable spark plug wire; coils are sold individually, two are needed per bike. If the ignition coils on your Honda are working fine but you still see some timing issues, try one of our ignition rebuild kits, as well as a new set of spark plugs to return to top performance. Our universal ignition coil is also a budget alternative.
Installation Tip: Disconnect the negative terminal on your bike's battery before you start working to avoid shorts and other bad stuff. When installing, make sure the connections to the points and the 12 volt power supply are clean and corrosion-free. Blue wire goes to the points, black is to 12 volt+.
The spark plug boots thread into the end of the spark plug wire with a threaded connector. Make sure that terminal is threading securely into the wire itself, and not off to the side into the insulation.
*Note that our "regular" spark plug boot can work on the Honda CB450/500T but it will be snug. We suggest the angled spark plug boot for a better fit.
