This is sound advice and you're not going to get better.

Re: What you think of this tune up kit?

Yea stick to NGK Iridium spark plugs and the dark blue NGK wires. I went with a NAPA cap and rotor and it's working fine. If you stick with Honda OEM your more than good

Re: What you think of this tune up kit?

Honda uses good st from the factory, why downgrade? If they were using champion plugs, you'd have a riding mower, LOL!

Re: What you think of this tune up kit?

It would kinda be like having 1000cc injectors on a stock motor. Not needed. The stock ignition is pretty stout

Re: What you think of this tune up kit?

Leave it stock. Replace what you have if you reached the interval for a tune up. NGK platinum plugs / NGK wires. We would not steer you wrong.

Dont do this.. Go OEM dizzy Cap.

My buddy had a MSD(solid brand right?) see through cap, and it melted and destroyed his dizzy while he was driving home down the freeway..

OEM for dizzy cap/rotor, and then NGK plugs/wires
