Spark Plug Wires? Kymco Agility 125

hi Guys,

I'm shopping for a spark plug wire for my Kymco A125. Strangely I can't seem to find any. It kinda looks like they sell an ignition coil with the plug wire attached. Is that the way it works? Any have a recommendation or a link?

Thanks,

Try Scrappy dog scooters if you can't find it locally.

Thanks. I gotta say I wasn't impressed with the fact that they had no idea that the Kymco has significant differences from the typical gy6. Made me a little gun-shy about buying from them.

They were really stumped when I came at them with my 50cc 2t Genuine!

I thought the Agility would take GY6 parts as well.

Have you tried racing planet USA?

It is tough to find knowledgeable folks in the scooter arena.

When it comes to scooter coil not much different between most of them. Single cylinder scooter run much the same . If the plug end is gone you could head to a autop arts store and tell them you need a spark plug end replacement for your coil . NKG makes then etc. You cut off the old one and clamp the new end peace on it. Around 5 bucks. Scrappy dog has done alright by me in the past . The phone service leaves something to be desired . I think his wife answer the phone and that the issue. You re dealing with someone whom doesn't know all the stuff vs the owner whom does. Still they ship fast etc. Basically they are clone parts .

If you need new special bend ends, caps, etc. try here:

I would be tempted to get as much as I could at the auto parts store. I think most even carry bulk wire and and will cut you a custom length.

That's sort of a theme. There are lots of parts that can be fixed or replaced with generic stuff or a little resourceful problem solving. And a lot of problems come from things that get loose or crack because of vibration. The other thing to remember is a lot of scooters are terribly abused and you need to check for even the most ordinary maintenance issues.
