Any updates? How's it working. Can you show a picture of the spark plug end of the wire. Curious what kind of time you used since it has to go deep.

Denso website says this about stick coils:
Stick coils are installed on top of sparkplug, the purpose is to reduce lost voltage between conventional ignition coil to sparkplug

BTW, Hacky is a pro mechanic, but he's also a top notch rider & a real contender in the Rawhide Challenge. The top 3 go to the world meet... he was #4 in 2010 & people wondering why only 4th.

Wanna help send Hacky back to the Rawhide Challenge?
