Accel Plug Wires?

Anyone ever use Accel 8mm plug wires? If so what ya think? I might change mine out before the summer riding season.

According to HD stock plugs and wires are best. Something to do with the electronic ignition and computer. Then again what the hell do I know.

When I changed my plug wires I went with the HD SE 8mm plug wires and they work great. The price was reasonable too.

Can't speak on the F/I but i use to run them on my old Carbed Evo.

But i Went to autozone and got the universal hi preformance V-8 kit, you cut them to what ever length you wanted, crimped on the plugs and boot and it worked great, Plus you could make 3 to 4 sets for what one HD kit cost

In some cases aftermarket plug wires, and spark plugs for that matter, can screw with the ion-sensing antiknock system on the EFI HD motors.

+1 with the key wording being "in some cases".

Did a quick search and found these Accel 8mm WILL NOT interfere with your EFI motor.

Hope this helps!
