Not bam, your not Emeril Lagasse. With the new treats 12 V you got to hack it in your 1977 five wire wiring system with a regulator without not shorting something.

It’s a bit easier to hack in to a 1977 5 wire system then the newer 1978 and up because or ground method but still you’re taking away three coils and putting in one so it’s not any more capacity, a china made coil and regulator chopped your wiring not gonna be as reliable

Those all in one coils are good if you’re missing your wiring that’s about it, Bikes I’ve seen seen or worked on to put back to stock that had one of those coils in was a birds nest of a mess wires hanging all over the place and the lights worked very poorly if it all
