    Plug wires

    I actually have 2 questions

    1) is there a better or cheaper alternative for plug wires for a stock GPR using stock coils? (there must be some automotive wires we could use)

    2) In a 2nd ski if I install the Seadoo 951 coils what wires should I use? (I know Brian at WPP used to sell a coil kit but I have no idea what wires he used)

    I used performance plug wires from the auto parts store.. and MSD boots. They look awesome; only problem is the boots don't cover the plug all the way down.

    Belden is a high quality brand that is offered thru NAPA stores.. you can buy the wire by the foot with a large assortment of boots and connectors available... pretty sure you can buy solid wire too... auto's use carbon core with their high voltage systems .. i havent replaced mine yet but thats where I'll get it from..

    Don't use solid core.

    I have used NGK racing solid core wires for years. They have an resistor on the boot and are about $15.00 to $20.00 each

    Anything susceptable to RF noise (electronic ignitions) will be affected by the RF noise. I prefer to mimic the stock wires. They work fine, and if maintained there is no reason not to use them...and actually replace them from time to time.

    I'm still kicking myself for not maintaining my wires.

    I was using very old wires, and it cost me bunches of headache this weekend. It wouldn't have mattered what was on the inside...it was the outside that was deteriorated. The conductor didn't break down. In fact, it still ohms out perfectly to the book. However, the outer silicon jacket was cracked in hidden places... the salt spray found the cracks and exploited the path to ground...electrons follows the surface of a conductor (wire, carbon, salt water, skin), not the core. They were more than happy to exit the wire to ground.
