919 Spark Plug Wires

Okay, I've used the search functions and can't find anything about making a good swap on the wires. However, I may suck at where's Waldo this month. I've never really messed with the build it yourself wire kits, and I would rather do things right the first time. To replace all the stock spark plug wires a noise caps with OEM, motosport wants $110. I'm hoping there is a cheaper set with better performance to be had.

If you bite the hand that feeds you, it won't taste as good as the food you were fed.

You can replace them with any wires that are sold in any auto parts store. When I did that to 9er, I picked up a set of the silicone wires and just swapped it. To remove wire from the boot, just pull on the assembly. Use dielectric grease to insert new wires in. No need to replace boots unless damaged. No performance gain if you are replacing perfectly good wires. They typically do not go bad on the 9er.

I know I have one damaged boot. It started splitting on the bottom.
