It's good they fit in: not too long, not too short but just right.
'Tis true, I did buy similar coils and they came with my GTR1400.
Lots of other sexy stuff also came with my GTR, such as: ABS; traction control; gobs of power*; an adjustable screen; let me count the ways**.
Divide one by the other and the individual items don't come out that too expensive.
* thanks to JohnM for this turn of phrase.
** Damn It! I haven't been this inspired for so long so here goes:
How Do I Love Thee GTR1400?
After Elizabeth Barrett Browning
GTR 1400 how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
The bore can reach, when riding out of sight
For the ends of being in an ideal race.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need for throbbing exhaust,
I love thee madly, as riders strive for ride (fast).
I love thee purely, as they lean into a turn.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old briefs, and with my childlike faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With every blast. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if Kawasaki choose,
I shall love thee despite how much you cost.
It has been said, that: beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them.
Or, said another way: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Can you believe it, there are actually people who see beauty in the form of the Kawasaki ZRX motorcycle. Isn’t that amazing!
I think there could be a human condition known as “motorcycle disease” – a patients obsessive attraction to a motorcycle simply because they own one.
Anyway, "love" and "beauty" are words we don't hear enough these days.

How to hijack a technical thread.
Perhaps we need to set up a new subforum just for Boxer's lyrical waxing.
