Bought a new coil and spark plug cap for my XR650L and they came separately - how do you put them together. It looks like you slide the wire from the coil into the yellow plug cap - but how far in do you go. Thanks for any help......

I'm not forsure,but I would coat the wire in dielectric grease and slide wire into coil as far as it will go.Hope this helps.

Exactly what Frank said with the grease, then take the coil wire, screw it into the cap boot. The cap boot has a small threaded screw inside of it that contacts the coil wire. Screw that in as far as it will go, then slide the black cap over top of the wire into the seat on the boot and you'r eall set.
