Question Spark plug wire set

I was wondering if anybody has used Accel or Crane spark plug wire set? Did some reading in the old threads but could not find any real solid answers to what I was looking for. I'm not even sure what degree angle are our spark plug caps. Any help - very much appreciated!

Here's a write up from Joe from the yahoo VN750 group that may help

Stock answer from me...

For the VN700/750

You should consider buying NGK plug ends if you haven't already. They are
great looking and my directions are based on using them.

2 Part# 20306 - XD05F Spark Plug Cap $3.30 a piece.
2 Part# 20789 - NGK Spark Plug Cap/LD05FP $4.80 a piece.

Grab yourself a roll of 8 mm non-resistor type wire from your local auto
parts store or speed shop. They may have to special order it. Even a 50
foot roll costs less than the Kawasaki replacement option. I chose bright
yellow... Looks good on my black and red bike IMHO.

Here are the wire lengths you will need:

2 x 11.5" long
1 x 14.5" long
1 x 20.0" long

Measure your old wires to make sure it'll work. If you can get 60", you
should have some to spare.

I cut my wire with a sharp scissors and stripped off the yellow insulation
so that the wire slipped into the coil easily. If you can get it to slip
into the coil with the yellow intact, that's even better. Take the rubber
"O" looking thing along with it's plastic cap (if intact) and use them on
this new wire. I had to squeeze the wire into these "O" shaped holders on
the coil end with a very small screwdriver. I pushed the "O" onto the
wire as far as I could (about 1/10 of an inch) and then "stuffed" the yellow
insulation under the "O" thing. This "O" thing holds the wire in place
along with the cap that screws onto the coil. Obviously, put the wire
all the way into the coil with about 1/8th inch of room between the "O" thing
and the edge of the coil. Then use the screw cap to tighten the wire down
and into the coil.

The plug ends "screw" onto the wire if you buy the NGK I told you about.
Just make sure you have the proper parts at hand and already slid up the
wire before you do this or you will have to unscrew the ends and start
over.
The "short" ends have a tighter rubber seal that is a pain in the tuckus.
Be prepared to work that baby on by hand for a bit. Some people use
dielectric grease to make it slide better...
