I have a rare model of Honda motorcycle that has a broken ignition coil which I am having great difficulty in finding a replacement for, price quoted for a professional rewind of the coil is much too high.DO YOU THINK ITS POSSIBLE FOR A REASONALLY COMPETENT DO IT YOURSELFER TO UNDERTAKE THIS JOB HIMSELF? Any tips/pointers appreciated.Jim Maw

Hello and welcome Jim to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Small Engine forum.

Personally, I have never attempted to rewind an ignition coil. Nor do I think it can be done correctly by hand.

What I suggest is to find one of equal capacity from a motorcycle junk yard. Once you determine the current ones rating, I am sure there has to be another cycle mamufacturer using the same type.

Try your local Honda dealer. You'd be surprised at what is still available.

Contact Honda Motor of Torrance California directly. I'm sure they would be glad to help.

Also there are probably sites on the web that offer used and NOS parts for this.

What type of bike is it that's so rare?
