    Yamaha Ignition Coils Regulator Rectifier, CDI Unit, Stator & Rev Box -

    check there, it would appear 84 - 87 used the same coil. Which isn't very surprising, many parts like these are used across several years because reinventing the wheel every year would be a real hassle.
    Couldn't put "fail" across Lolo's picture, but she did come in 4th in the 100 m hurdles - still one heck of an effort.

    see there, that's normally just called a "pickup" or "electronic pickup" or something like that. It is basically a crank angle sensor - and it tells the computer when to send the spark to the spark plug.

    As I described, the "coil" is where the energy is stored until the engine fires.

    If the coil is 84 to 87, it would seem likely (but not absolutely) to be the same.
