Looks like someone used an Accel Super Stock wire kit and just made them to fit




Nice bike man!

Anyone know if any accel kit can be used so long as it's 7mm or greater thickness?
Are there certain specs to look for?

'85 engine and '84 colors. What year is it?



What is the actual diiference? I thought 84 and 85 were pretty much the same with 86 having more components blacked out

The differences between the '84 and '85 years are the only ones that are NOT merely cosmetic.  Changes were made to the oil pipes feeding the head, and to the left crankshaft end seal.  The easiest way to tell an '84 from an '85/'86 is to look at the pulse generator cover; the first year has the cable exit at the lower right while the later years it exits at the upper right.

Mine is on the upper right so that's correct. I think when the guy repainted it he just could not find the 1985 emblems...
