  1. Would someone please show me a simple diagram of how to use a
    transistor to fire the ignition coils on a 750 Honda motorcycle - I
    just want to have the breaker points switch the transistor to fire the
    coils so the points do not burn/wear out so fast.

    Thanks.

    I figured it would be perfect.

    You want to make sure you use a choke with at least the 10-15 ohms of
    resistance specified (one with a lower resistance may effect how the
    transistor turns on).

    That is a germanium transistor specified. They can still be found.
    Use a silicon part and you may need to tweak the design some.

    What year 750? I'm riding an '81.
