i know a dude who's salvaged milk crates full of various large gauge, high quality audio wire. pretty cool lookin' stock too...opaque red, blue and clear coating. plenty of capacity to choose from.

go find a dumpster behind a radio shack and let us know how it works.

I'm pretty sure the plug wire is epoxied in to the coil. I don't know if there's a resistance test for the plug wire. Do you suspect there's a problem with the wire, aside from appearance? All the old school garage tricks can be tried; move the wire around while the engine is running, look for spark jumping from the wire to the engine, spray water on the wire while it's running. If none of that seems to make a difference, you probably don't need to do anything.
But a new set of coils/wires might make you feel better...

Not quite sure what you mean by this, but it's funny... 'cos I just e-mailed him & called his cb750 a dildo.
