Plugs and Wires Change

I've read through the forums and I've seemed to locate everything I need. Scored some iridium's for under $20, got my NGK caps but after an hour and a half of phone calls, I can't seem to find any auto parts stores selling 8mm wire by the foot. There was one that said, "we used to but there just doesn't seem to be a demand for it now". I was then told that they have a "Custom" kit where the wire lengths are long and you just cut them to fit.... $89.99


Anyone know of any auto part chains that sells bulk wire? If not I'm thinking of going to wallyworld and getting an 8mm 4 banger kit and just modifying that.

NAPA autoparts sold me 6 feet of Belden 7mm hi-performance wire in white just the other day. Give them a shot. They had to call a parts depot or something of theirs that had it on a spool that they just cut off for me. It was not much more than a buck a foot. The 8mm seemed to be too thick to fit, but the 7mm was a perfect match for what was on my bike.

Use 7mm copper core wire, DO NOT use carbon core suppression wire.

Check small engine shops.

7 is the "stock" size. If you use 8, you need to shave it where it slides into the boot.
