I don't think it's been mentioned here, but what type of spark plug caps should you run with this setup? My coils have already been messed with (coils, wires, and caps), so I'm replacing the whole thing.

I know some plug caps run resistors in them, and some don't. Electrical work is NOT my forte, and I don't want to screw this up. So if anyone could point a link to the correct caps, I would be grateful.

Bought my caps brand new from my local parts store (Oreilly's Auto). The price was negligible since they were 2-5 dollars each. They run great on my bike and are typically what these bikes use.

Check your local auto store they might have them just ask for NGK Resistor spark plug caps.Don't go to a bike breaker for this kind of thing you'll wind up paying more for a used and corroded part. Also ditch any leads you have and run new leads with the new plug caps. I spent total 10-12 bucks for the leads ordering them from Dennis Kirk online.

Now, when it comes to the plug caps, what size resistors should you run in them, if any?
