Curious about plug wire issue

Getting ready to change my 20 yo stock plug wires, and went searching for good replacements, and found a few choices. I see alot of posts saying to use "solid core" wires on or bikes, and I can understand the reason behind it recommending them.

What I haven't seen yet, and what my question is- what would happen if we used a "graphite enhanced, blah-blah-blah core" suppression wire on our bikes?

I'm just curious about it, as I searched and read more and more info, the question just popped into my head....

Would it be bad?

TIAFTTTTRAAMQ.

There is a post somewhere that talks about supression wires but I can't remember if it was good or bad.

All the verses mention is 7 or 8mm wire and NGK plugs and caps. No mention is made about supressor vs non supressor wire or plugs. I'd say go for it.

Most of the posts I've found, suggest solid (copper) core. I didn't think it would matter on our bikes since we have no radios, or sensitive electronics. Being able to use those other types of wires opens up choices for other makes and of course, colors.

The whole searching, shopping thing just got me wondering...I could link to all the references I found for using the copper cores, but I don't feel like diggin all that **** up again.

Kanuck has been riding on his "auto" wires for several miles without issue, so that works for me.

Thanks for the reply's.
