Stucked ignition coils
« on: Dec 04, 2019, 10:30 PM »
Hi Guys!

I've checked many topics about stucked ignition coils, but I can't find any solution how to remove them.
Brut force together with tons of WD40 didn't help. I can twist them only 5-10 degrees with pliers. Already tried to put some feeler gauge between rubber sealing and valve cover, but it is possible to put only about 5-6mm. Also tried to twist with pliers and put a screwdriver under connector but I'm worried it will crack.

Do you have any tips and tricks how to remove them?

Try gently tapping the key when it's in the straight ahead position.

Key ???????????

What's the key got to do with the coils?

OP sorry I haven't had this problem have you tried lifting the seal and squirting WD40 or similar down the plug hole?

Yes, already lift seal and put a lot of WD40.
I can twist coil only a little. Can't move out

Richard (Towerman) will probably be along soon with some words of wisdom.

Drill it hollow, insert a big ass sparse threaded screw and use a crowbar. Just a stupid example not to be taken literally but the point is, perhaps it is easier to destroy them and put in new ones than to bother with getting them out intact. Do you know the history of the bike? Sometimes people have intermittent electrical problems, moisture around the coils is suspected and god knows what, perhaps someone put heat resistant silicone or some other nasty gunk in there.

Heh...
Unfortunately don't know the history.
I bought this versys from some dealer in Poland, but motorcycle was imported from UK.
Probably first spark plugs inside ;(

Already think about destroying coils only to move forward with maintanance.
It's good that winter comes... And bike could stand in garage :)

Unfortunately I have no experience of 'Stuck Coils', as I have had mine lubed from 6,000 miles and they still slide in and out very easily even after 45,000 miles  :192:  :088:

Just remembered to mention - if you go the destruction route, the most crucial part is to clean up before you remove the plugs and drop something into the cylinders.  Compressed air would come handy.
