Default spark plug wires

Has anyone installed Victory spark plug wires (catalog#2880797-053)?If so, is there any claim of performance gain? Is the install simple? Thanks

There just pretty is all. Never Never pull plug wire using the wire.
Use the boot to pull wire. Auto store sell a plug wire puller buy one it will save you a lot of headaches

In the related-and-FWIW dept.:

Last (2014) fall, I ordered the Victory red plug wires, 2876145-015. Googling a few minutes ago, I see that that part has been superceded with another number.

I also ordered NGK iridium plugs (DCPR6EIX 8196), and went to my local Harbor Freight and bought a spark plug boot puller ( ).

One day over the winter, I replaced the stock plugs and wires; I had about 27,000 miles on my '12 XCT at the time. I had ordered the wires mostly because I'd read a few posts here or on the other forum, about the wires coming apart.

As it turns out:

1) The boot puller couldn't fit down the narrow and deep plug hole, to get underneath the boot, so I didn't use it.

2) I grasped the boots, by hand, as low and as gently as possible, and twisted and pulled a few times, and they came off. I don't believe I damaged the stock wires, but I used the new ones anyway.

This is a pretty trivial project, provided you have an air gun to blow out the wells after wire removal, a 5/8" plug socket that's not too thick, an appropriate torque wrench, a little anti-seize, a little dielectric grease, and a little common sense.

I haven't noticed any change in performance after the new plugs and wires, although I think the red wires look nice. With the iridium plugs, I expect not to bother doing this again for some years.

I bought a set of the chrome-and-blue wires from WitchDoctor for looks only. Any performance gain you get by simply changing spark plug wires will range from non-existent to almost non-existent.

I got the red Taylors from WD. Threw in an expensive set of Iridiums and fired her up!

WOW ! Holy CRAP! I cant believe the difference! Really none what so ever but I did notice a little smoother throttle response.

It was tune up time so I splurged a little.

I put a set of magnecors on the wifes bike (
If you want to learn about wires poke around their site. Especially the faq
I put them on any bike that I am replacing the wires on because they last the life of the bike. I've never had a set fail.
One less thing to worry about.

Even if you don't want their wires reading their site is worth the time.
