Anyone have a link for spark plug wires for a Volusia?
From what I found you can't buy spark plug wires from the dealer unless you buy the assembly that includes the coils. That being said, I replaced my plug wires a couple years ago with wire from the local parts store. I bought 8mm spark plug wire, they sell it off a roll. Buy more than what you think you'll need. The coil end has a outer shell that covers the plug wire and coil where it meets the coil. I found that I could remove the plug wire from the coil by unthreading the wire out of the coil. Once you get it out and look down inside you'll see a spike in the coil. A little dab of di-electric grease on the new wire and push and thread the new wire down into the coil. The same goes for the spark plug end. Un thread and grease, rethread into the plug. The cover that transitions the wire at the coil and plug is there to keep moisture from getting in and ruining the contact at the spike to wire connection. Before you get one side or the other mounted put a piece of heat shrink tubing over the wire that will also go over the coil and like wise the boot. Once the heat shrink tubing is set into place you'll have your new wires installed and protected from moisture, rain, etc.

My bike is lurching in the low to mid range rpms. Do you think that just replacing the wires will fix that or should I go ahead and replace the coils as well?

I have checked everything. The only thing I can think of is spraying the new jet down with some carb cleaner and seeing if that does anything

When it does it, reach down and pull the choke out a little. If the lurching stops, then you are running lean and it is a carburetor issue.

There are so many variables to getting a jet kit right, there is basically no way the bike would run perfect after just installing a kit. Many people take theirs apart multiple times to get it right. Just about every bike would run different with the same kit installed.
Do you know the jet sizes you used, pilot, main, and how many turns out on the fuel screw?
