Welcome to the forum.
The newer CDIs supplied with the kits have the high voltage lead (spark plug wire) epoxied into them. They can be removed but you need to be aware that there is a small metal threaded part protruding up from the center of the terminal where the wire goes. The epoxy, glue, whatever they're using, can be scraped out and the wire unscrewed but be careful and do not damage that screw portion. That is the electrical connection that needs to go into the core of your replacement wire which will 'screw' into it. Once uncovered it will resemble the threads of a small sheetmetal or wood screw.
Good luck.
