    Can plug wires be replaced on SL900?

    I would like to replace the plug wires on my SL900 - if possible. I've never been inside the electrical box ... so I don't know what I would find inside there if I popped it open.

    For some reason, I'm thinking this can't be done ...

    Yes it can be done. The original wires are a solid copper core, they use a spike that the plugwire threads onto ,at the end of the plug wire at the coil and plug boot.

    Cool ... good to know ... thanks for the reply.
    Next question: Are these generally available? Do I just shop for "solid copper core wire" and cut to my desired length?

    (Obviously I haven't wrenched too much on this machine ... got it for $200 two years ago, and it had only 50 hrs on it, and all I did was replace the plugs and gas)

    That is a harder question. I get the impression the wire is sold in bulk, as a role.
    I found a number for the 98 models, 3070178. But can't find a price or availability.

    You could check with a motorsports place, I'd imagine it was used on other stuff.

    I have never needed to replace any. The ends can be trimmed to expose fresh wire.

    Okay ... I'll check. I did find a place online who sells the "copper core" wire by the foot ... so maybe I can try there. Don't really need much ...

    The reason I want to change them is that the cylinder closest to the electrical box (#?) has such a short wire, it barely reaches the plug. It's not "tight" ... but close.

    This place seems to sell it ... not sure if it's the exact stuff:
