Title: ZG1000 Stick Coil Kits by T Cro ® (Read the last post)
Post by: T Cro ® on May 11, 2011, 08:03:00 pm
Stick Coil Kits with Plug & Play Wiring Harness can be had for those who want to bring their ZG1000 Concours (all years) up a notch or two in the age of new fangled technology.

Please know that this technology can be applied to numerous Kawasaki bikes from the same time area such as the ZRX, ZX, ZL etc...

Price is 130.00 with shipping included to all those in the US, 150.00 to those in Canada, and anywhere else the postman will deliver. Best to send me a PM, or contact me via email at tonypcro @ gmail . com (remove extra spaces) and we will close a deal. I prefer payment via PayPal but I'll gladly do Money Orders as well as Checks too.

For those interested I can usually sell you a harness only for 80.00 with shipping included...

+1 on that!  Installed my set this past weekend.  Seems to have smoothed out the idle even more and cleans up the engine top side clutter immensely!  Easy to retrofit and highly recommended mod!   :thumbs:

I want, let's make it happen, how do I do this?

Did I mention I'm new?  Just bought a 2003 C10 and I have been farkling up a storm.  New front tire, speed bleeders, EBC HH pads, stiffened up the preload in the front (previous owner weighed 125!).  It's no sport bike, but it does make my FZ1 fee like a dirt bike when I get back on it, so there's that.

As of Sept 5 I'm out of stock; I'll be building another batch ASAP and will let y'all know when I've got set ready to go. As always y'all can pre-order or even pre-pay for a set if you want to be put at the very front of the production line.... Thanks to all, hope y'all is happy with your purchases!

Hello all please note that I must raise prices due to increases in the cost of material that goes into the making of the harness; as those who have bought my harness can attest the quality of these harness is beyond reproach and even at the new price they are still quite the bargain considering their construction.

New pricing for complete kits will be 120.00 with shipping included to all those in the US, 130.00 to those in Canada, and 140.00 to anywhere else the postman will deliver. For those interested I will sell you a harness only for 80.00 with shipping included to the US, and 90.00 to Canada. To which you can try your luck at snagging a set of coils on the cheap on eBay; I simply don't have the time to bid on the really cheap ones. When I buy coils I buy the best that I can find for the best price via the Buy It Now Feature or make purchases in bulk through breakers that I have trust in.

I will have another batch of 25 harness ready to go by the 12th of Oct to which please be aware that I will be on vacation come the 15th through the 22nd of Oct and there will be no shipping during those dates.

  are these still available as a kit for $120.  Not being a mechanic do they come with EASY to understand instructions or does it need to be done by someone else.

Yes.... Yes... No!

Might be a slight delay in shipping but for sure by mid next week.... BTW this will be the last kit for about 6 weeks as I've got to build more wiring harness and I only do that while I'm on board ship.

Very easy to install... Completely "plug & play" you can install in an easy hour with one or two beers tops.

No military background here.... Have been a Merchant Mariner for the last 28 years and have been tramping the Great Lakes for the last 16 years as the Chief Engineer on a 550 foot self-unloading cement carrier; previous to that east coast oil barges  and Gulf of Mexico oil rig support.

As to the symbol I just like Pegasus; reminds me of the Concours a horse that can fly.

And I thought your avatar was the Mobil gas logo turned around.  Used to have a local station nearby where we bought our tractor's gas when I was (much) younger...

Absolutely; I'd remove this thread if I was not still supporting the ZG1000 Concours....

Currently asking 125.00 delivered in the US; out of country pricing to be determined due to changes at the PO....

PM sent too...

You throw enough money and manpower at a burnt out engine room and it will all work and shine once again; we sailed out of the shipyard in early March and have been operational since then.

We are down for the next couple of days with unrelated repairs to our steering system as we developed cracks in a steering actuator...

Engine fire, cracks in a steering actuator.....what next, snakes in the hold?

Well, T-Cro sent me a set of coils and his custom harness. $140 to Canada.
I was keen to get them on so I ripped into it tonight
when I got home.

20 Minutes and I was cruising the hood on a test drive.

It sure starts nicer and the throttle roll on feels much smother.

All in all, a fine product and a very happy customer.

Thanks T-Cro

Best Regards,

Dan

I really had no issues at all.
More people should go this way. It has smoothed the idle
out immensely.
Working in the Auto industry for the last 25 years helped me get
my head around it... 

I wish I had thought of this.

Working in the Auto industry for the last 25 years helped me get
my head around it... 

The one reason that I use the same color wires as the factory is that without thought we should want to put like colored wires together and if you do you have hooked up the wiring correctly when you install my harness.

We also think from left to right so again without thought we should want to place the # 1 wire on the left plug and so forth; but even if you thought from right to left and installed as such it still works just the same.... Thus making the harness just about a foolproof install that one would have to try very hard to install wrong ....

As to the left over red wire tape it up for a rainy day; as you can use it to switch a relay with the key to turn something else on/off.

The remaining black with yellow stripe is a ground wire; keep it out of the way or re-ground it to help strengthen the entire ground system on the bike.

Tony,

I just bought myself a 1987 Kawasaki ZL1000 and I've been told that the engine is the same as the C10 Concours.  The ZL1000 is in need of spark plugs & wires and I am interested in your stick coils.  Do you know if the stick coils will work and/or fit in the ZL1000?

Thanks, Bob T

I am from the Berkshires of western Mass.  I just bought the bike and since it needs plugs & wires I am opting for the stick coils; plus winter is coming soon I am not going to register the ZL until I get the carbs done by SISF first.

Bob T

ps, Tony, let me know when you do have your stock of stick coils available. Thanks
