Installing the  Coil

in '71 to '79 XS650's

Note: Use of the 17-6810 coil will void the warranty

You can use ordinary ground clamps, available at a hardware store, to clamp the coil to the cross bar under the gas tank.

Go to Home Depot and buy 2 Ground Clamps (1/2 - 3/4 - 1") #051411160104 @ $1.46 ea.


Attach the clamps to the coil using bolts in place of the screws and clamp to the cross bar.
