ATV: You can't be serious?
Take this for what it is as it is NOT a ride test....yet!

Today I finished assembly and installing my rear suspension and that was as far as I was going to go. But, I grabbed my new Nology HotWires and installed those too. My initial impression is this....I notice that my spark is definitely more blue. I have never seen spark this blue on ANY of my toys, ever. It is definitely more intense spark. Tomorrow I will dump some gas in the ZR and fire it up. I don't expect this to tell me anything more just yet and will wait until I get some actual seat time to give full review. But for now, definitely, spark is more blue. I was kind of surprised to be honest and now I can't wait to actually ride with these things!!!

Jeff, where do you find these wires and how much do they cost? Ron.

I got mine direct from Nology, ordered online. They were $37.24 each plus $8 shipping (standard UPS fee these days). Dennis Kirk sells them ($46 each) and Thunder Products sells them too I think. Cheapest I found them was direct from Nology.

This is C-Notes doing, he's been using them for years. If you guys have questions about them you should talk with him.

Just a quick note....Nology says best results are obtained with standard non resistor plugs. I had resistor plugs hooked up. I plan on trying non resistor plugs to see if there is any difference but that will come later.

Theory Question: Ignoring the interference with peoples' houses along the trails for a second- can nonresistor plugs be run in an efi sled? I would think the ECU wouldn't like them much.


Looking to buy for 2001 ZR800: center bellypan/skidplate,




2001 ZR600efi extended to 136"
1999 ZR500efi- SOLD and died an untimely death
1996 ZR580efi- RIP Died an untimely death

Do they come with endcaps?
Can you thread them right into the original coils no problem?
Are you letting out a big secret of C-notes?

yes
yes
nope

I think he's talked several others into trying them too, so not a secret anymore. It shouldn't be kept secret if they work. They claim these wires can reduce emissions and that is a good reason (any performance gains withstanding) for anybody to get them if they actually do it. I am hoping for improved cold starts with them. I am 2 pulls away from EFI now as it is and if I can get 2 pull cold starts than I am glad I spent the money for that reason alone.

I was just looking at their Canadian distributors. The only 2 in Ontario are close to me. Just fired off an email to one of them. Of course I have other ways of making nice blue spark too.

Just wind the stator to produce more voltage.
