what spark plug wire should be used for 19991 RE bulet 500?
« on: January 26, 2015, 11:31:31 PM »
spark plug wire broke on my 1999 re 500cc. there are a few options available at local canadian tire store from ngk. I'm not sure which one to take. One says 5ohms and one says 1 ohms and there is one without resistor. the one which broke had a resistor in it. also if someone could post right part # for ngk spark plug that would be great. thanks

I'm not sure about a 1999 but the wire and resistor cap for the UCE engines should have a 4.5K-6K ohm resistance.
Guessing you might have forgotten to type the K, the "5ohms" would work fine.

If you get the "1 ohm" wire be sure your using a resistor type spark plug.  They usually have a "R" in their name.

I'm using spark plug without R in it and the new spark plug with does not have any resistor either. anything i could mess up without using a resistor?

Just the engine control units in the cars around you.

The resistor wire or spark plug helps to reduce the radio frequency emissions that your engine will produce when it's running.

Iron enfield engines were intended to have a resistor wire/cap OR a resistor plug, but no both or none!
I have a BK8ES (Or whatever it is) with a resistor cap and it runs fine, when I had a BKR8ES it burnt out a plug in 2000kms.
