Just a little hijack, Sky Hook, love the mountain buddy, hope to be in town for either the All American trials or the finals.

In changing the plug wires,when you lift the tank,do you have to disconnect the wiring under the console, and the vent tube?

Yepper, again, a Harley service manual is your friend. Different wires have different ohm's... Makes the ECM read differently. Harley's wires are within the ohm allowance...
