Hello all, long time no post!
I have a ‘80 750 C model with modern oem replacement coils, works perfectly fine but I’ve always wanted to upgrade.
I’ve stumbled across a set of NEW ACCEL coils and the seller claims they are for his ‘80 750... (that’s what his listing says).

Now I was under the impression that the ACCEL coils were for SOHC only, am I wrong?
Are these yellow coils really for dohc?
See pic attached.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Found a couple of things that suggest if the part number is right, the coils might work on a dohc cb.

Yep, the stock DOHC coils were also 3 ohm resistance so you're good to go.
