    i am on my 3rd CG kit. i like to use my own plug wire. the 1st 2 were screw in type, no problem. this 3rd one that showed up is a glue in. is it glued and screwed ? or just glued ? will i destroy it by attempting to remove the wire ?

    It is glued and screwed. You need to be careful and not break the little threaded part inside the base of the plug on the CDI. Take your time and dig around the insulation of the wire and don't get too deep or in a hurry.

    If you've replace the wire before then you know to thread the replacement wire onto that threaded part keeping it centered in the wire's conductor. This especially important if you're using resistance wire with a non-metallic core or conductor.

    Very good choice of wire. It will look good and deliver maximum voltage to the plug. I am not a fan of resistance wire for these little weak ignition systems. It is designed and intended for use with systems that produce much higher voltage than a simple magneto/CDI system like that used on motorized bicycle engines.
