    96 SL900 where to buy COIL

    I am having trouble with my jetski, 96 Polaris SL900. I have the updated stator and CDI kit. i was doing some testing and the coil shows wayyy out of spec. So, question is, what coil can i use for this jetski seeing how polaris discontinued the OEM coil? i have no luck finding any on ebay either. any and all help appreciated. thanks!

    Post a picture of your coil, with plug wires attached to spark plugs.
    There are 2 posssible coils used in 96, firing order will be the difference.

    Those plug wire boots look like they are from a Yamaha or something.
    The 105-53 number is a "PVL" company number,we have no way to cross reference it.

    The 4060138 coil, Polaris also refers to it in the service manual as a "1240ohm" coil.
    Meaning it measures 1240ohms from plug boot to ground. With those Yam plug boots, I don't know how accurate it would be.
    When looking at elect box from above-the plug wires should be (left to right) 3-2-1.
    I think this is the coil you have.

    The other more common coil is the 4060153, 1550ohm coil, plug wires coming out are 1-3-2.
    These coils usually have the part # on them.

    Both of these coils are obsolete.

    In 99 Polaris started useing the 4010342 coil with snap in plug wires,4010173-71. This coil has the 1-3-2 firing order, you would need to also buy the plug wires to fit this coil, the wires are different form the older models. To use this coil you would need to switch the wires from the CDI to the correct cylinders.
    This coil shows being available from Polaris.$130 + $38 for 3 plug wires.

    I might have a used 4060153-with plug wires- it would be a couple days before I can check.

    I looked for anything on e-bay, absolutely nothing....reasonable.

    well....thanks for all the info. i was lucky and found the whole box on ebay with the coil that i currently have in there plus the plug wires. and it was only $40 for the whole thing!! so if this doesnt work im going to go with the stuff that you were telling me about. or if you have that ....153 coil. Ill see if this thing works first. seeing how i needed the box anyway, i figured i might as well buy it. thanks again for all the help. i really appreciate it!!
    i just hope i can get this damn thing fixed
