Hey
We had a similar problem in my brothers VN though we were paying for a mechanic and the coil packs everytime so it worked out expensive. But the caus was the bit the coil pack bolts to, sorry i cant remember the name but yeah they replaced that along with another coil pack and she kept going, until some wally forgot to put oil in it and ignored the oil light lol.
Hope that helps.
Cheers Tom

Not to sure about the cause, but if it's a series 1, I would strongly recommend you get series 2 coil packs, definitely much less troublesome.

Make sure you still have that heat insulating paste on the coil packs' underside.
