You're right, Duane. It's 5k and 3k ohms - I dropped circuit analysis in college. Snowbum says running without resistance will fry the bike's electronics. That's something I don't know anything about.
The Accel kit came with silicone wire. I understand the reason copper is better for conducting electricity.
Do you think my 6mm wires are OK for a coil kit that came with 9mm wires? I will contact the mfr and check with them as well.
