Ignition coil removal
« on: August 07, 2018, 12:04:57 PM »
Quick question guys, how do I pull off the ignition coils on a 15' xrx?  in the middle of doing my 6000 mile service and the coils will not pull off and I do't want to force them.

PULL straight up.   They are a tight fit.

Have done that, they aren't budging, and my knuckles are bloody from trying! I have decided to leave them until the next service as it's only a spark plug check. Next service is the 24k one will be done at a garage who will have more knowledge than me.

Disconnect the low voltage lead then pull and twist.  If they aren't budging then at least there is a good seal!!

Definitely a good seal, tried all that couldn't get any of them to budge! I'm no muscle man but I'm not that weak!
It's a shame as everything else went really smoothly, including tank, airbox and rear wheel removal!

 :493: just the answer I needed. Seems to me they have never been off on my 32,000 mile machine. Although LINGS of Norfolk and Suffolk have been servicing it up 30,000 miles.
Still wondering how......

i find the best way is to try and spray some WD40 down the side of the coil packs while turning them, then leave for about 10 minutes, i then get a long flat tyre lever and put the tyre lever under the plug part of the coil pack, slide the tyre lever forward until you can lift the lever up ( hope this makes sense to you ) and prise the coil out, i always think it will snap but it never has, and i have done it on 4 tigers now, lots of times with no problems, it does need to be done with steady force, no jerky movements.
never ride faster than you can think

Bit agricultural but when I had same problem, I carefully pulled them out using a water pump pliers to grip them - should have used some masking tape I suppose but it workd anyway
