Much of my problem stemmed from the previous owner. When the Rallyraid kit was installed, the wires weren't long enough so they were lengthened with 2 short wires. The the Ignition coil uses 1 small and 1 large connector, when he installed the wires, he used 2 large wires. These came loose, then broke then, then came loose again. I think I have a pretty good fix now.
That's what I did to my wife's ignition wires (2008 690 E). We bought it used with RR tanks and got stranded in Taylor Park, CO with a broken ignition wire. I soldered on new spade connectors and about 2 inches of heat shrink. No problems since then (with those wires anyway). I do plan to lengthen them, maybe this winter, as they are tight and the RR bracket does put the wires at their limit.

Thanks again for the ride Noah! Awesome vicarious Nirvana!
