I have an 84 wing aspencade 1200. I want to replace my spark plug wiresand am wondering what might be a good type and brand to go with? At the shop their kinda exspensive and thought an auto parts store might be good. I want to get excellent one's. Thanks

The Ltd Ed owners manual recomends the following:



Standard:

DPR8EA-9 (NGK)

X24EPR-U9 (NIPPONDENSO)



Cold climate:

DPR7EA-9 (NGK)

X22EPR-U9 (NIPPONDENSO)



Extended high speed riding:

DPR9EA-9 (NGK)

X27EPR-U9 (NIPPONDENSO)



I'm sure they are the same for your bike!

The title is plugs, the body states wires. Which is it?

Plugs? You can have the auto store cross reference the stock type. In the 'Wing I prefer the NGK's.

Wires? Probably have to go with factory I would guess. But, they rarely go bad so is there a reason to replace them? If the seal between the wire and boot is bad black silicone is a great product to keep the water out.

Well my bike has been running bad engine sounding bad lossin power and back firing. When I reseated the spark plug wires my bike sounded really good for about 10 min of riding then went back to sounding bad. The boots are cracked and I thought replacing the whole spark plug wires and boot might fix my engine running problems.

I bought replacement spark plug boots at O'Reilly's Auto. They are NGK brand (XD05F). The O'Reilly part number is 8072, and they were less than $12 for all four.

The plug wires are standard 7mm copper core. your parts store should have it on a roll.
