Haha.  I want to give this solo seat idea a look.  Going back to what I envision for the purpose of the bike, which is a gravel/sand road beater, it makes sense to have a solo seat and rear rack.  That describes more of a scrambler than a tracker.

Did you measure (or know) primary resistance of the Emgo coils? Usually the 'tiny' ones are designed for CDI ignition and will burn out on a points system

Might it help to keep them cooler if he maxed out points gap?

I don't have points on here.  Still though, I think the resistance has to be 3 - 5 ohms.

Leave it to PJ to rain on my BBQ. No worries though. In the spirit of being cheap, I dug out a couple of coils that didn't work and "rebuilt" them. I broke off all the epoxy around the base of the plug wire and the connectors. Then I cut off the ground and power wires, leaving clean terminals. I twisted and pulled the spark plug wire out of the coil body. The plug wire is pushed onto a pin in the same way the plug cap is done. I drilled out the plug wire hole to 8mm down to the pin. Then I pushed the plug wire in, checked resistance (9.5k ohms), and epoxied them in. I checked resistance again before the epoxy set. Then soldered the lead wires- one with yellow, one with blue, a black/white, and a black. Put new NGK resistor caps on, checked primary resistance (14.5k ohms), and secondary resistance (4 ohms). Lastly, I coated the solder connections with liquid rubber.

Nice job on rebuilding those coils!

You can use the small ones if you toss in a 2Ω or 3Ω power resistor. 50W should be enough, but 60W would be better.

XL fender is more fitting to the style that MX is too flimsy also so paint will hold up longer on the more rigid plastic. I wouldn't be afraid to put a decent depth of foam for the seat insert, your gonna want the comfort.
