2007 GRiSO 1100

Removed tank to try and remove the cursed oil pressure sensor. Couldn't get to it because my spanner was too long. While I'll tackle that later, I decided to change inner plugs. Pulled the left sparkplug boot and found a melted conductor. So I pulled the entire wire assembly out. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] 
I tried to find this part, and no one seems to have it in stock. Instead of waiting 3 weeks, can I substitute this with a different one? How about a car sparkplug wire and cover? Any ideas? Thanks. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Any copper sparkplug wire will do, the important thing is cutting it clean so that the plug cap screws down the middle of the copper. At the coil end I usually expose 15mm of copper strands and fold them back around the cable before crimping the coil connector on.

NGK have been making the most reliable sparkplug caps since 1971 - so i would go with those Smile

I bought CK3 plugs on Amazon and went down to the local NAPA to get some plug wire connectors on the coil side though ideally you get metric sized coil connectors. I have to mash the plug wires down when putting the plastic covers on but it works OK, I like the one-piece design of the CK3's too.

I kept the wire and changed out the boot. The online motorcycle shop I bought at swore it was a direct replacement. It wasn't. I had to shave the rubber to get it to fit. Actually went too far and hit plastic connector. I used plastic dip to repair it. Snug as a bug now. I have an oem boot on order but I may just use that as a spare down the road.
