    Hi "bt", had the same thing w/ one of mine at 325 miles. Performance plug wire and NGK plug from SBP did the trick. BETTER than new! The guys here aren't kidding abt this upgrade. And, uh, ... KEEP trying!

    yeah i kept melting my plug wires.. got a hold of some from a buddy when he changes his cables in his car cut them to length and threaded on the cdi and got a new cap WORKS GREAT

    great idea.. amazing how much of a difference a quality plug, cap and wire will make.
