Plug wires

I installed some Phat plug wires on my bike, but they don't fit in the retainer clips. They aren't loose, being phat, but is there a heat issue? The longer one is resting on top of the valve covers. The OEM wires were only separated from the covers by a thin plastic clip.

I also just changed my wires to HD's orange screaming eagle 10mm plug wires.


the kit came with two black plastic wire tires. just tie the back plug wire to the clips and all will be fine. even if they rest on the valve covers some it isn't going to hurt. they will never get hot enough to melt the wires.


the only place where it could burn them is on the exhaust headers which is not an issue here.

no not really, but love the orange look it added to my bikes orange and black theme. i'll post a pic when I can.


yeah, HD's screaming eagle plug wires they sell on the HD website, claims it fits these street models and are 10 mm.


they wont fit the rear wire's metal clips unless you bend them out some or just use the included black wire ties. which is what I did.


they look cool and that's the only reason why I bought them.
$30 for 2 plug wires is a lot of money, but I love the new look!


as far as performance?....I honestly cant tell any difference.

I May get a set of Red Sumax from DK. I have the Red and Black 750. 8mm should fit the existing holders.


When I get the money, I am getting a Service Manual. Then I'll be able to do my own Mods. The Majesty has a Nology Coil and Hotwire. Using the Manual(For the Coil Ohms) I bought Universal parts that worked. Started right up when I did it.

Aha! That's what the zip ties were for. I'll do that. I got the red ones, BTW. Adds just a hint of color. I like it!

I was looking at the Screaming Eagle plug wires the other day, just wishing they came in Blue. I may go with the 8mm Sumax, as they come in Blue. I am planning on adding some blue highlights to my bike, like the Rain Sock for my V&H intake, a Blue Tire Penz for the lettering on the tires, and then the blue plug wires. But liek someone else said I am still trying to swallow $30 for two wires.....so not yet....but soon.
