My H2 build requires me to move my coil location to under the seat somewhere. I will obviously need longer plug wires. Whats the recommended coil upgrade that will allow me to run longer plug wires ?

Scooter mini coils will work but be sure primary resistance is ~1ohm.

If you use those, make sure they're in good air flow. Long plug leads are never helpful. If it were mine, I'd find a way to mount small coils close to the plugs.

The tracy body im fitting to the H1 chassis is very tight fit under the fuel tank area. I had to trim off the oem tank mount and coil tabs for it to fit correctly. So, I was going to mount under the seat area. But if I can find small enough coils that will work correctly then maybe I have enough room under the tank area some where.

Worked on the body fot the other day a bit. Im still on the hunt for smaller H2 coils to replace the larger originals. Anyone have a link to any proven ones?
