Magnum Braided Ignition Wires for M-8

Pittsford, New York based specialist Magnum Shielding has expanded its braided ignition wire selection to include all M-8 Harley-Davidson motorcycles 2018 and up.  Available now, the ignition wires are offered in five colors, Sterling Chromite II, Black Pearl, Polished Stainless, Candy Apple Red or Electric Blue Metallic.

Sterling Chromite for Softail

The wires are constructed from high-voltage, high-temperature 8 mm silicone ignition wire with an OE style, high-performance suppression conductor core for guaranteed compatibility with OE ignition systems. The 8 mm silicone wire is covered with Magnum’s proprietary high-quality braid.  Magnum then extrudes a heavy walled, clear FEP Fluoropolymer outer insulation to eliminate the need for grounding wires and to assure there is no electrical interference with the ECM. 

Sterling Chromite for Touring models

The wires incorporate stainless steel Posi-Lock terminals and silicone boots to ensure maximum performance and clean spark delivery. This is all accomplished in-house at Magnum’s manufacturing facility, with quality US components.
For ease of installation, Magnum Shielding ignition wires are direct fitment, 'just remove the stock' wires and replace them with the braided versions.
The 2018 and up Softail kits contain four braided wires - all the wires are visible, so all four wires are braided. 

Ignition wires - all colors

The 2017 and up Touring kits contain two braided wires for the left side of the bike and two unbraided 8 mm silicone wires for the right side. Only the left side wires are visible, the right side wires are hidden by the fuel tank. This allows the ignition wires to be matched for performance, without the additional cost for braid that you won’t see. 
Magnum Shielding has been manufacturing matching braided products for over 37 years, including brake lines, control cables and ignition wires.
