Plug Wire Resistor is it really needed?
I just want to take a moment and thank my professors here at "Vulcan University"....without this forum and your expertise I wouldn't have had the balsac to get down and dirty with my bike...Tnx to all!!!!
I read an older posting by the "Wolfman...Wolfie; where if I understood the post he recommended removing the resistor in the plug wire: During a check of the stock coils, one of the coils was dead on the secondary circuit. I removed the wire and checked the coil and it was right on spec; the wire however was another matter...I removed the resistor and it was dead..the wire was good.
Not sure if this is a weak area or not but might be worth keeping in mind if you're broken down on the side of the road with no spark in one cylinder. Credit to Wolfie...remove the brass screw in the wire socket with a small flat screwdriver...remove the spring and the resistor: Replace with screw stock cut to size; in an emergency on the side of the road you can wrap the resistor with tin foil:
Aside from Professor Wolf has anyone else removed the resistors and what was the result and why are they there in the first place...I'm inclined to think they should be removed...
