I was gonna suggest Magnecor for the leads, I've used them in the past and they seem pretty good....just gone onto their website to sort out part numbers for you and it seems they no longer have a uk stockist for Buell sets. :headbang:

Stop press....they are available here:

http://www.sparkplugs.co.uk/

Search for MAG-2022, MAG-2722 or MAG-2522 depending on what diameter lead you want....

Not Buell related but I had problems with my commuter SV650 turning into a 325 every time it rained :x ( scary when you're on a roundabout in the wet and it suddenly fires on two again :o ) a good dollop of dielectric grease around the front plug cap and lead and Bob's your auntie even in monsoon like conditions.....sorted :yup:
Last year I joined a group for anti-social people
We haven't met yet.
