Post Nology Hotwire install
I just installed this on my 05 zuma and was pretty happy with the results. Its not going to blow your mind with massive horsepower of course but I noticed a little more power and better throttle response. Its worth your hard earned or not hard earned dollar. As the story goes energy from your coil is accumulated in a capacitor built in to the nology wire.Once the electrodes reach the ionization point all the stored energy in the capacitor is discharged at once.Results are a 300 times more powerful spark.So after all that take the coil and spark plug unit off you scoot. Your going to need to take the lower plastic off.If you don't know were the coil is its at the other end of the spark plug dummy.Once thats off you need to cut the coil wire 2 inches off the coil.Don't be scared.Then you simple screw in the adapter until the wire snugs in its new home.Then cut the nology wire to desired length.You must leave at lease 2 inches after the capacitor.Thats in the thick part of the wire so 2 inches from the thick part.Nice.Now screw the nology wire in to the other end of the adapter.Just like you did with the wire on the coil.Oh crap don't forget to use the heat wrap that came with the wire.Alright now put it back together.Once the plastics back on and the coil is reinstalled you need to ground the braided wire.I grounded mine to the battery.I just cut a little slit in the battery firewall.See the pics if you don't understand.Youll get it.Now screw the adapter on the spark plug that came with the kit and hook up the wire to the plug.There you go your ready to rock.I also use a malossi cdi unit but you dont have to.Don't be cheap either get a new spark plug and a nice one your scoot deserves it. Hope this helps. Fly high stay low young brothas

Very nice write up. I have been wanting to do this for awhile, just not sure about results versus dollars. I think I have made up my mind.

It was $44.95 from zumasrus. I think they are also known as calamari.They were really helpful and I recommend ordering from them.

Post Re: Nology Hotwire install
As another bit of info I redid and cut the coil wire about 1 inches from the coil. I heard 2 inches from the coil and 2 inches from the capacitor.I left 2 from the capacitor but about only 1 inch from the coil.I think you just need to leave room for the heat wrap on the coil side and you'll be fine.And go!

I just did the same mod along with an adjustable needle from TC. I noticed easier start up and better throttle response.

No offense to anyone, but I think the "performance increase" is either the new plug or the good ol' placebo effect.

You can tape a 50 dollar bill to you front fairing and it "FEELS" faster too. :q:

Really though all that matter is you are happy with it.

And I do appreciate the GREAT write up and pics - Good job :toot:

Post Re: Nology Hotwire install
I need to get this wire. My scoot has several mods, its just missing the nology hotwire and the helical tall gears. Just ordered front and rear brakes and rear tire. Got ALL my parts from zumasrus or calamari. They actually answer the phone when you call... Old post I know but it something I need. Hopefully some other folks can discover this inexpensive tune

Post Re: Nology Hotwire install
just installed the hotwire and it helps... seems like their is a tad bit of hp gain but that could just be strong spark. anyways, well worth the $44.95

I notice no difference and I took mine off and sold it. I got the motor force coil and wire combo and that did make a big difference.
