Has anyone had any experiance with the graphite core (black fiber core) plug wires for replacements. I have a universal set for automotive that I can make a set from but don't know if they will work? Surely someone has already tried this??? Thanks
i did not say that they would not work. but i`ll bet you that the stock set up is very hard to beat. i have replaced a connector on mine in 92k miles.
still going strong.
yeah i know some times it`s got to be thinking out side the box due to not finding replacement parts used or new.
I wouldn't run suppression wire with factory 5K boots. All that resistance will alter the spark.
I use Scosche 8 gauge copper amplifier cable. Very high strand count. Low resistance.
Nothing wrong with 1100 coils IMO. Them coils are a non-issue for performance.
A best modification to consider would be to locate dual clip anode screws for the plug end of the boots, as in the last picture.
Current ignition is:
GL1100 coils w/1.34 ohm ballast @ 85*F
Dyna III trigger and amplifier
Scosche 8ga. EFX wires (ends soldered and drilled)
NGK plug boots with copper-clad steel pins replacing resistors
KZ1000 dual-clip anode screws
NGK D7EA plugs @ .043+/-
...plus some other stuff for 22Kv peak @ idle
Note the first three pics below. GL1100 wires. Honda(?) puts a crazy crimp on the wire during its twisting process. Honda must have approved spec for production. The crimping is not from my cutting of the wire. Nothing about that crimping makes sense to me. No benefit. A process of manufacturing.
Last three pics - 2 showing casing size of Scosche/Factory wire and last showing non-removable anode screw in new NGK boot.
