Hello I have a 94 vlx. Ive bobbed it and have open pipes. I awaiting velocity stacks from TJ brutal customs. I want to change my plug wire so I can use the new ngk iridum plugs. The factory wires are desgined from screw top plugs and they are "domed" top. Not sure the technical term. My question is I bought some accel universal wires. The part of the factory wire that goes into th coil is just sliped in. can I just cut the accel wires and slip them in?

It may. I tried that with the last lawn mower plug I bought and it broke the insulator. This way I get some color and new wires. Im not very experienced this is the most mechanical stuff ive done. Other than specialized manufacturing equipment. Im going to post a build thread on my vlx soon heres a pic.http://i1146.photobucket.com/albums/o528/sdustin/Mobile%20Uploads/CAM00739_zpsa3frhavy.jpg (http://s1146.photobucket.com/user/sdustin/media/Mobile%20Uploads/CAM00739_zpsa3frhavy.jpg.html)

...all the Irridiums I ever got (NGK) didnt have the screw on cap....but honestly, I feel Irridiums are a waste of money.......if yer carbs are set right, etc....stock plugs are fine...Irridiums are overkill....and WAY overpriced....

...stock plugs can be recycled too, by cleaning...once my Irridiums crapped up, I just cleaned my old NGKs and been runnin them 2 yrs now....

...anyone remember the days when the auto parts store had a "spark plug cleaner" ???....was like 50 cents per plug....I just do it manually now....Brakleen em....and emery cloth on all open metal surfaces....I aint bought plugs in yrs....
