I have an MSD wire on my BigRed250 and its been on there over 10 years and its still running strong but thats with a stock XR400 coil.....

You have a higher voltage Nology so Id swap the wire..in all actuality you should be changing the whole coil....Coils have a shelf life as much as a service life...Perf coils for cars are supposed to be changed every 5 years whether they work or not.......

You can get an NGK plug cap for $3.10 at PB Parts in Florida. Go to an Auto store to get your wire, 7 to 8mm 350K per ft works pretty good. Some coil wire unscrew, some don't which make it harder to change over.

PB Parts in Florida has NGK black caps for $3.10 ea., I got 3 of them & some other stuff cause shipping is exspensive on small orders.
You can use Chev. 90 degree silicon low resistance plug wires, at some stores you can buy hen one at atime. Cut off what you need and screw it on your coil. My avatar bike has 9mm Accell drag bike wire on it, had to cut the first outer layer, and silicon around the out side.
