Relocating Stick Coils

Sorry to do a highjack

The stick coils I got came from a K1200GT. As you can see the body of the coils are the same length. I peeled off the rubber boots to expose the brass contact pole extensions, the extensions are secured to the body by a snap ring... If you follow this route what you need to do next is going to be evident.

This is how it looks once you are done...

Coil placement: high, dry, and COOLER
I'm going to give this a try on my 1150 GSA using the existing stick coils. But was wondering about the ground wire on the BMW coil wire, that is fastened to the back of the cylinder head.
Is this the same on the 1200GS (searched Maxbmw micro fiche no luck) & if so did you reattach it to another point higher up in the frame?

I will have to do some real hard looking for a mount location as the 1150GSA doesn't have any Tupperware in your location...but that will have to wait till it warms up here in the North.....Thanks
