Chip Posted May 11, 2006 Share Posted May 11, 2006 I did it. Replaced the 10 year old spark plug wires (over 70k miles) with a pair from Nology. Definitely made a difference on two points. 1) The bike runs better...specifically, it idles smoother, pulls a bit stronger (that part *might* be my imagination...hey, you spend ~$80 for spark plug wires and you really do *hope* there's a difference ), and the periodic sputtering appears to have disappeared. I say appears to have disappeared as we had a cold front move into Houston last night. My bike has always tended to run better in cooler weather. I'll have to see how the bike runs in a few days when the normal heat and humidity of Houston returns (that would be ~85 degrees and 80-90% humidity...I love this place!). NOTE: I'm guessing BMW wires would have done the same as the old wires were...well, they were old. 2) While waiting for the wires to be delivered, I had teh "opportunity" to clean stuff that is normally covered up by the gas tank.
