    Default Cloth Plug Wires from Lowbrow...anybody running?

    Thinking about ordering a set of the black with orange tracers. Anybody running them? Any issues?

    Yeah, looks like the 8mm is about $5 bucks cheaper on ebay. I always try to go through Lowbrow since I usually have the parts in my hand within 2 days.

    no issues, super easy install but the exposed plug contact kept on zapping me with my new seat/riding position. I cut up an old plug cap to cover the metal on the rear head and it's all good now.

    getting zapped by spark plug wires is pretty unpleasant when you're riding hah

    I bought some of the asphalt covered ones, cables themselves seem fine but connectors are pretty cheap/jankety. Work ok other than getting shocked, make sure your leg won't be resting near them.

    Yeah. I use Lowbrow quite a bit. I will usually make a list and wait till I need $100 worth of stuff and get the free shipping.


    And I did use some rubber boots that I had laying around to keep from getting zapped.

    I've run them on m ironhead and my evo for a few years now with no problems other than getting shocked by the connectors when I'm not paying attention.

    Ha! Getting zapped is no bueno. It looks like they are including the coil cover boots and the plug boots now with the kit.

    Good source.....ugh man....with those prices and all the stuff they have it will be tempting to do a full re-wire in cloth wrapped.
