Upgrading HT leads...

Been asked on another forum about upgrading the HT leads on a CBR600ft and weather its worth it or indeed doable?


Any electrically minded people on here wanna offer advice? You can upgrade plugs to iridium ones so can you do similar to the leads?....


Cheers...

Depends whether

The leads can be detached from the coils or not normally the leads have a keeper ( gland ) underneath the plastic nut which holds the lead into the coil .....these will need putting onto the new leads as the coils ain't a screw fit like the spark plug cap...... also you need to think whether you would want to change the caps or not some caps come off the leads some don't ..... ngk do some funky rubber caps have a look pdq  and Here

Oscar might even loan you..........

his claw hammer & stilsons to do the job Gateshead style.:lol:




Some HT leads are secured into the coils by epoxy resin on older bikes. Can still be done using Dremel type tool to cut it away before removing.

Coils

You could always replace the OE coils with stick coils from a newer CBR

It CAN be done, as my ZZR600 used to run CBR600RR sport stick coils. BUT the modification is well documented on a forum so the hard work had already been done (finding which coils fit and how to wire them).

If you google "cbr600 stick coil mod" you will get lots of info.

The one thing I would ask is, if there's nothing wrong with your bike as it is, why change it??
