Replacing spark plug wire on a Maxi

Jeff Woodin /

I haven't looked at it too much but I don't understand why all the replacement wires just come with an end with nothing on it. The stock wire on my bike has a boot on both ends.

Does the new wire need to be stripped and then soldered on or something? I have no idea how it connects yet...

Unscrew the wire. Hold the cap and twist counter clock wise.

Reuse the cap and boot.

Most of the time i just cut about 1/4 "off the wire and screw it back on.

I don't really understand what it means to 'unscrew' a wire...is it threaded somehow?

Re: Replacing spark plug wire on a Maxi

Yes. There is a brass wood screw shaped "screw" that grips the wire.
