    I am not done yet with replacing the spark plugs & installing the new Thunderbolt 50 plug wires, due to the spark plug mix-up, but there are a couple items worth noting:

    1. The original plugs I pulled, at 2 years & 8,500 miles, looked great. They could have been left in with no performance issues at all. They also looked exactly the same. This next set will go 3 years.

    2. The original plug wires are nylon wire tied to the frame, and I have not given them a through inspection, but where they were tied, they were too tight & cut the outer insulation.

    The new wires are so much better quality, it won't be a issue, plus I will install them properly.

    I did wiring bundle installations on F18's at McDonnell Douglas & you use a manual gun to tighten & cut those nylon tie wraps & if the gun is not set properly, you can damage cables.

    The stock spark plug cables are also very flimsy IMO.

    I finished my installation of the new plugs, plug wires & the DK Customs air wing deflectors.

    I have not got to go for a ride yet, but its running strong. I am going to do a separate post on the new plug wires later.

    UPDATE: I forgot to mention, while I had the tank off, I checked every bolt I could get to and found nothing loose. I also inspected all the wiring routed along the frame & found no issues.

    It doesn't look like I'm riding today as it's been storming for 12 hours & we have another 36 hours to go.

    Wow, you guys are taking a big hit with all this rain

    Has the flooding settled down any?

    I saw the damage on the weather channel, it sure sucks

    Rivers are receding a little, but there are still hundreds of roads closed & widespread damage.

    It's a terrible situation & it will take months to resolve.

    I got a 35 mile ride in between storms & my Freewheeler is running great. All my recent upgrades are working well & the new plug wires are an impressive performance boost.
