I found that my wife's GRiSO SE had a bad connection at the coil end of the plug wire on one side and because of this it had been arcing pretty badly and kind of cooked the end. I could just replace the metal connector, but the wire looks pretty beat up.

While I'm in there, and the bike is going to be idle a while, I think I'll just replace them. I have SB05E's on the plug ends, so I'll just reuse them on the new wire.

Do any of you know how big a wire can go in the channel under the cover? I see Accel has some 8.8mm wires. I'm curious as to whether or not they'll fit. Are there any pre-made plug wire kits made with the SB05E's already on them for the GRiSO 8v?

Thanks,

Doug

Not that I know of. I simply buy copper cored HT lead from 'Wottalottacrap Auto' by the metre and cut it to length.

There were/are some NGK leads with 90 degree caps available a few years ago but they were a Japanese market only product and were poisonously expensive. I did buy a set but ended up giving them away as using the SB05E caps just made a lot more sense.

Is there nor enough length in the original lead to just snip a little bit off the end?

There probably is, I'll have to cut and check. I'm concerned that the arcing thrashed the core a good ways back. I'll know more when I trim the end off.

Mine started arcing this week, nothing getting to the plug as a result.  Couldn’t believe the piaggio replacement is now over £100!!  I’ve ordered one but will happily cancel it if anyone can confirm a perfect non OEM option?? 1200 SE 2011

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] I got tired of the wire issue on my former 15 8v and didn't like the hard cap solution so I bought some NGK racing wires and cut to fit never had a problem again plus the red sticking out looked nice

As long as the OD of the wire will fit inside the coil and plug cap ends it can be any size, the channel in the rockerbox cover is large enough.

My 'original' wires were carbon fibre - horrible things prone to wicking water up them and to failure. Replace with copper asap

The NGK wires just needed the end crimped on for the coil Napa had them ran in lots of torrential Florida downpours never skipped a beat.

A while back I went on the non-productive LOCAL search for the coil end crimp on connector.
AutoZone, O'Reillys, Advance, NAPA to no avail.

Ended up sourcing from  JEGS.
Bought this 10 pack.
