You can replace your coil and get one that say no external resister needed or keep the coil you have an add a ballast resister like the O'Reilly's part # VR-1 which is small and easy to hide and the way it mounts you have a good heat sink so it lasts longer then most

Use a regulator instead of the cutout. Your battery will live much longer.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

You need to add an external resistor (cheapest way) or buy an internally resisted universal coil.
A coil that is labled for use on a 12 volt system STILL requires an external resistor.

As Cowman says,you will need to add a resistor.If you don't do this,you will need to buy a new coil in about 3 hrs.Don't ask how I know this......"smokin"!

You need to add an external resistor ahead of your coil.
