So...
As I mentioned in the last few days.......I did a soaking wet ride in the rain and ran into problems.....
So I checked the spark plus wires today....and inside part "17" on the forward facing cylinder......it was still wet inside with a little road grit too....after a day with the fan on it....

all other connections were dry and seemed un corroded....mint

My question is....do the new ones come in parts....or are the assembled ?

As i'm not planning anymore rides in the rain...could i just redo the connection (cut the wire back and reattach) and slap some new plugs as i'm sure one of mine got alot of unburned gas on it ?

Any secrets to gettin the plugs in and out safely ?

thanks in advance

Stephen

I’m using sum Bosh 8mm silicon inductive lead.
You need to shave of part of the outer jacket to get it to fit into the coil * cap.
Haven’t had a problem with the leads since I did the mod 12 months ago.

Are they solid wire core?

The oem ones are sold with the coils, the oem ones for an SV1k are bonded to the coils (and I mean really bonded) and very water proof. If it were me (and it was me a little while ago) I'd buy new coil/lead assy's and be done with it. SV coils are a touch smaller physically than TL coils, but its not hard to mount them in the same location. The leads are the correct length.

No
The core is made out of a piece of ferrite with a stainless steel wire raped around it.
It is the modern equivalent of the old carbon suppression leads.
Using inductive lead also lets u remove the resister from the plug cap which will give you a
Better spark.

And less interference to the ECU

I always used the articulated one that was in the tool kit.

The plugs have a 16mm hex.

I use a regular 5/8" Sears Craftsman spark plug socket. They're nice as they come with the little rubber insert to protect the insulator.

5/8th and 16mm = same so it is metric I'm sure.

I don't have a pic of the SV coils but its just like the regular coil, only shorter.

I replaced my OEM plug wires with 8.8mm ACCEL wire. As Pad said, you just need to trim them down a bit with a razor. A touch of silicone sealant around the wire as you are screwing it into the coil helps... both acts as a lubricant, and then once it sets up, it seals the wire in the coil.

not sure if it was the coils, or the wires, but I was missing occationally on one cylinder for about half a season at low RMP and on moist/damp days.

replaced the coils and wires... narry a problem after that.
