"solid copper core spark wire" is a misnomer as it's actually stranded for flexibility so yes you're looking at the right stuff.

if you want an easy no hassle solution replace your wires with these wires which have pre-molded spark plug ends and correct angle to replace the worthless NGK caps,have done two bikes so far,over a year ago and absolutley no problems,just put one end on sparkplug,run wire to coil and insert,done
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TAY-73253/
one kit does two bikes

in fact if someone wants one set of bare wires and still wants to use the ngk caps, $18 shipped to you us,canada $20

ps changing wires on the aspencade/int is a 25 min job,on
on the SEI/LTD's its about 1 1/2 hours if your lucky
