should work fine. Has two outputs, and is a 12v coil. Can't see why not! I have heard of people using auto coils and "y"ing the plug wires together. i am not a fan of that though...

I'd look into the HD coil, I wish I would've known about this option since I bit the bullet and bought the Sears coil for right around $80 when I was working on the twin.

e-Bay and other places that carry them (like advanced services and parts LLC) aren't much of a help price wise, most of them are only within a few dollars of Sears' price.

Thanks all
I had this running good using a coil off a 70s something Yamaha
twin snowmobile but the owner thought it was jerry rigged and would quit in the middle of a blizzard SOOOOOOOOO I told him to bite the bullit and cough up the $80 which is what he is going to do
