Spark plug Wire Mod

Happy New Year to all!!!!

Have any of you tried the spark plug wire mod on the 2008 Teryx? This is replacing plug wires with automotive type wires. I read this is done on the 650 and 700 v twins. Wondered if this makes as much difference to the 750 ie smoother idle and easier starts. Maybe it would fix the miss or stumble with the non programmable cdi? Any Comments Thanks

dynatek offers wire upgrades, here is their wording:

Accessories - Dyna Wires
Dynatek "Dyna" Wires are made from high grade automotive, silicon jacketed, high tension cable. All wires are supplied with finished spark plug boot ends and loose coil terminals to allow the final length to be determined by the user. Wires are available with a solid copper core for use on older vehicles where electrical interference is not an issue. For use on new vehicles with electronic advance ignitions or other sensitive electronic equipment, use DYNA suppression wires with a high grade graphite core for best performance and electrical noise suppression. Both wire types ensure maximum energy transfer.

Spark plug mod

Thanks sleepy23 for the information

I think I will install the 2 automotive wires to see what the results will be. I will post my finding if any in a couple of weeks.

sounds like it might be worth a try on stock coils, but no need to bother on dynatek coils.

"The coil kits we have available for the off road applications do include new
copper core wires that mandate the retention of the factory resistor cap(s).
The street/cruiser coil kits do not include wires. However, the same
considerations must be maintained. Use a copper core wire with the factory
resistor caps, or, a suppression core wire without the caps.
Performance wise, there is nothing to be had by changing our recommendations
and in fact, a loss of performance could be realized by doing so."

plug wire mod

I think I will stick with the stock wires and install the ngk Iridum spark plug, most likely achieving the same results. Sleepy 23 I thank you for you good advice, that was what I was looking for.

Im putting mine back together now with an FST std bore kit and have already changed the wires out. I'll let you know how it does after its up and running. I dont see how it wont work though, the coils have the same part number as my 02 Prairie and I spot checked the Brutes too. Their part #'s are the same also. The plug wires are the same too, just different lengths. This should work and I hope it does because it made a world of difference on my Prairie.

Hi all
I did install the automotive wires on my 2008 Teryx. It made it start easier and I really like the quick response the engine has. I have done a modes to the carbs like shim the needles .20, clipped 3 coils off the springs and polished the slides and also jetted carbs 138 142. I removed the muffler core. All in all I like the way it is running.

Does any one have the information or part number for doing the automotive spark plug mod, just ordered new coil wire, but can’t find a spark plug tube anywhere local. I would like to see what is needed to use automotive wires?
