Copper cored sparkplug lead from a lawnmower or small engine repair?

I did this with a set of GL650 coils when I fitted them to a CB450 as the leads needed to be longer.

They work well.

I just checked Silver's. They don't list the caps for the 650 models but they do have the ones for the 500s. The caps are the same for all CX/GL500/650 except that the (removable) rubber boot that covers the opening in the valve cover is round for the 500 models and square for the 650 models.

The bolts are longer but the caps are the same length. When I installed the 500 engine in Eccles I put round boots from 500 caps onto the 650 caps and they fit perfectly.

Thanks guys. I’ll have a dig around in the garage as I’m sure I have cx500 caps somewhere, just need to find another square rubber bit then.
