Sigh...  that's one problem with living so far away from anywhere  - the cheapest set I found (4 plugs + harness) was at least $100 more than that. And that is from the UK. One 'local' (other side of the country) ebay seller is asking for $220 for the same thing!

 

I got the whole lot from the US for under AU$75 posted Shaynus. 

A bit of patience will pay off mate.

2008 CBR1000 COP's and harness, 1.4 lbs lighter, much cleaner, -4 coils hanging all over the bike. Thanks Rush and Mohawk for the assistance

It never stops, does it? Moving onto my next project. Since I don't feel like modifying the 6th gen airbox, I'm just going to go this route.

But when I get an idea in my head I want to do something about it NOW!

... and then have the parts sit in my shed for 6-12 months until I get a chance to do anything and then another 6-12 months until I finish it!

Wow!

It's like looking in a mirror... that sounds just like me :blush:

Got it fully finalized today. I bought some better soldering gear and heat gun for heat shrink tubing so I could permanently join the CBR plugs to the VFR harness. 

#3 wire was a tad short making it tighter than I wanted, so I added some length. I have most of a ZX636 wiring harness and found one wire to match. The other will have to be brown...

I found some fancy high temp resistant tape used by auto manufacturers for under hood wiring.(Tesa 51036, btw) Figured it was worth a shot. More like a cloth than traditional stretch electrical tape. I still suck at wrapping, though...

I didn't trust my jenky soldering to not eventually poke through the heat shrink, so I gave each one a wrap of tape.

Starts on the button, as they say. Actually better than it had been recently. It was taking 2 pushes when cold, now it fires right up with the first push! I'll probably change the plugs at some point soon-ish. I don't remember how long they've been in there.

Thanks! I've actually been practicing my soldering this evening and I could do it so much better then I did the other day.

I posted this in my refurb thread already, so if you've seen it before apologies. I completed my COP swap recently and this thread was an excellent guide. I chose to use the boot/seal over the top style COP's common to GSXR's and, like others, found the length/plug engagement/and seal to work seamlessly on the VFR. One tip - I pulled the rubber seal and installed it first, then inserted the coil second. This ended up meaning the seals sat a bit lower on the coil, just below the notched area they sat in originally. The fit around the coil is a little tighter because of this, and the seal over the plug tunnel is very positive as well. We will see if they move around, I haven't had the bike back on the road yet. Here is a pic of the part #, thanks everyone for sharing the info:

Anyone know which Denso pn. the VFR1200 uses?

Denso part number means like this ? 129700-5370

 

I searched some time ago and got the same pn. 129700-5370

That's the one--thanks, both.

 

I saw an eBay ad for one recently (but not the pn. view) and it definitely looked like a Denso CoP.  The Denso part numbers all begin with 127900, but 5370 is not one I've seen before (or measured).  It looks like a CBR1000RR CoP, which is pn. 5150 (which is the same length as a 4400), but the grommet appears to be significantly wider--which would help "internal" sealing in larger valve cover openings.  Here is a picture of a 5150:

And here is the 5370:

Now, if they only sold the grommets separately...

Surely someone with a 7thGen has or will change their plugs sooner or later... and have a decent set of vernier calipers.

adkfinn - The 129700-4800 sounds promising, let us know

I'm in the VFROZ camp, where prices are somewhat surprising, including the not-so "plug and play" options.
