You guys have good luck with cheap ebay ignition coils? Would like to save money but also don't wanna waste time.

Are you sure you need coils?

Have you tried cleaning the spark plug caps and nipping off a bit of the spark plug wire?
Spark plug replace, cap cleaning, wire inspection

Honestly i just need the little rubber gromet that holds the wire on the elbow part. I just had a hard time finding them for some reason and i saw the whole coil and wire was like 12 bucks on ebay so figured i could go that way.
Sounds like you should just do the COPS mod instead of replacing with originals.

Cant find any real cheap for the cops mod but definitly think ill do that once i know the bike actually runs. Its really beat up and i got it pretty cheap as a project so i just wanna get it to start before sinking more into it. Once my other parts come in for the carb i guess im just gona try and use tape to hold the old ones together to just get it going for a minute.
