I have the niner apart for some TLC. Just checked the valves (15645 miles and within spec as expected) and was reassembling. Decided to check the spark plug wires before putting the coils back on. Wires 2-4 plus plug caps were 5.14-5.23k ohms. No worries. Wire #1 was 4.33k ohms. That is approx. 17% off from the next closest. Decided to investigate. All 4 of the wires minus caps are 0 resistance. Perfect. Checked the caps. 2-4 are the same 5.14-5.23k ohms. #1 cap by itself was the off factor. Decided to take it apart. The resistor inside of the cap is the real culprit. Exact same resistance as the whole wire assembly. I realize this probably won't affect the bike performace much but has anybody experienced this? I am finding about 25 bucks for a new cap from several sources but all I need is that little resistor. I have read on some older bike forums that you don't need the reistor and can replace it with an aluminum or brass rod but I am not doing that on a modern bike. Any information for a source on these resistors would be great. They are unmarked and have no identifying numbers at all. I can buy the whole cap but because it it is just the reistor I would rather get just that.
