      I've heard all the problems with the coils over the years but this was the first issue I had after 55K miles. I decided to replace all 3 to see if there was a noticeable difference and the bike is definitely running better now. I decided against the hotwires as I read as much bad as I did good.

I replaced all three on my wife's Adventurer and my T-bird and was very plesently surprised. Just go for it. That said, the stock plug wires were a better fit than the wires that came with the Nology coils and seemed to work just as well.
