Has anyone changed out the spark plug wired on a Surfjet? Can they be taken off of the cdi unit without damaging it? Mine are very rough and the boots do not snap onto the plugs very secure. Found this out the hard way out on the lake today. Lucky for me I had a paddle with me.

Sounds like he has a lot of faith in the ole Surfjet!

I keep a collapsible paddle in my couch. Came in handy on a tour ride when we got stuck in a bayou full of moss mess that clogged everyone's intake. Everyone without a paddle got to walk their skis out in gator infested water.

You would have to carefully drill out the coil and the pott a new coil in. There's a write up somewhere I'll look for

Can you just change the boot end with new ones?

I wouldn't normally carry a paddle, but this thing was last registered in 1998. This was the second time I have had it in the water since bringing it back to life. We carry a collapsible paddle in the SC, so I bungee corded it to the deck of the Surfjet just in case. I will try some new boots when I get back to town tomorrow. If that doesn't work I will have to try to get the wires out of the cdi.

Before removing them from the CDI try an NGK wire extender:
