Default Spark Plug Wires

So I have been trying to find a new place to get wires. Cause guys have complained about radio interference.
Victory use a special wire end that goes into coil. So there hard to find.
Victory wants $62 per wire. I bet they buy 30 thousand wires a year. Guessing they're coast is a $1.00 a peace. So there is big mark up.
Witchdoctor sells colored wires from $39 to $52 bucks with the correct ends.
I contacted Sumax and they are willing to make them. Not for sure yet.
The guy wanted photos of the end that goes into the coil. So I pulled my wire out of coil to find one we have a odd ball end. It all so was kind of corroded .
So pull your wires and put some dielectric grease on each end.
I looked on Victorys web page and they list the same part number for "all" models. Never seen that before

What is "carotid" ???
A corroded carrot maybe ?

When my bike was new i pulled the vic wires and kind off broke them, ( to put electrical greas ) that is how stuck they were, then i orderd WD wires and they are not very good quality, even missing the 90į bend on the coil side ..... I always wanted ti order better ones but never got around to.

If you are looking for wires try some from these guys.
I know they make them for the xc and xr because I put a set on the wifes bike.

Magnecor Race Wires

They work great and last as long as the bike without degrading. I've used them for a long time and never had a wire go bad. Can't say that about other brands.

no issues with my stock leads and there's a trick to removing them.
I use a chunk of car heater hose that I carry in my toolkit.
use it on the engine fin to prevent damage and lever up on the plug lead boot as well as steadying it all with your other hand.
Comes off easy with zero damage to anything.
