I would like to use a single coil to reclaim the space under the gas tank for an Motogadget M-UNIT Blue. Is there a way to replace the existing 1:1 coil to spark plug with a 1:2 coil that provides the spark to both plugs ?

Thank you for your help.

I adapted a GM distributor-less coil to my 1979 Honda CB400T II. It is CDI similar to the CX500
that I have. The CB400 fires both plugs on every stroke so one is wasted spark and one fires the f
uel air mixture when the time is right. The conversion was easy and cheap but may not work for a
CX500. Go to Honda Twins forum, look in the section for CB400s SOHC and there is a sticky in the
electrical section. I will try to post a link. The conversion may not work for a CX but the info is
worth a look.
