That bike is so beautiful and now with the Sumax wires its powerful.
OK its my bike and when you bolt or put a new part on your bike just feels better. I know its between my ears that give me this feeling but.
In this case I swear the bike starts better and feels smoother going down the road.
I do think everyone should change plug wires I'm not saying Sumax per say I think the factory wires are not that good.
How they plug into the coil

I have a pair of the chrome/blue wires from WD. TO look at them, however, they look just mostly like chrome wire loom. I like the plain blue ones better...

Any radio interference with using them?

If you want a new color, that's all they're good for. You won't gain any power with them.

Default do not last

factory carbon core wires do not last + are not the best conductors, and modern solid wire spiral core wires have less resistance + fully suppress interference + last longer. as noted most gains are barely noticeable but possibly in higher rpm's or smoother idle, or of course your OE wires are failing. quality MSD 8.5mm wires can be found for about $60 for 8 wires, thats why i question the pricing for two!!!!! you can get universal wires where you install the one end at the coil for even less!!!! we overpay for many motorcycle specific parts, spark plug wires do not have to be included IMO

So true rodhotter, the stock cables are "fine" but there are motorcycle spark wire manufacturers with MUCH better quality insulation / thicker / less resistance cables for sell that looks good / bigger / after and maybe improve or not... That wouldn't matter...

There was 1 guy on a vic who went to DyNo and the reading of the plugwire clamp was OFF, coz of the good insulation, so he had to put the STOCK wires back on for the DyNo run only

Where does one find BETTER spark wire boots & cables that fit Victory, and make it ourselves ... This would be very interesting indeed....

Never had any radio noise from plug wires.
I didn't feel any more power but I swear the motor ran smoother.
