Good idea Mark. I'll do that. I find it difficult to believe they are any better than these 10.4 mm 409 Wires from Taylor in quality but I bet they fit better.
I doubt it if they are made to Victory specs with that little ring around the top.Are these new plug wires easier to pull of than the factor wires. Do you need a puller for them?
Taylor technical support:I do have some questions I probably should have asked before. I notice the 409 10mm are racing wires. Are the Thundervolt's racing wires also and do they also come in 10.4mm? How does this affect longevity? Do the racing wires last as long as regular plug wires? What is the main difference between the 8.2mm and the 10.4mm?
I'm only trying to be an informed customer so I order the right product next time.
The moral of the story from what I'm reading is these wires last pretty much forever. You never need to change them so the extra cost is sooo worth it knowing it's one less thing to concern yourself with. Couple these wires with some long lasting (I'm thinking Iridium) plugs you can just forget about dealing with either for the life of the bike or at least 100k miles.I will try to go in order with the answers. All of are wires can be considered “Racing” or “Performance” wires because they are of higher quality than an OE replacement type. The ThunderVolt wires are available in 8.2mm and 50-10.4mm, they also have lower resistance / better performance than the 409” but you will not be able to see a difference from one to the other. There will be no difference in life expectancy / longevity from one to the other, as long as you don’t physically damage (cut / burn) the wires you should never have to replace them. The 8.2mm and 50 wire have the same conductor, it’s just another pass of insulation for protection. The 409” has the same conductor as the 8mm Spiro Pro (our most popular) just with another pass of insulation.
Exactly!...a wise man.Yup, and that's come up before. Unless you are making some serious performance upgrades the standard spark plug wires are totally sufficient. Upgrade when you have to or suspect insulator breakdown is causing some troubles.
