I have bought mine from O'Reilly.
Another advantage to picking some up at O'Reilly is their loaner tools. They might just have a spark plug wire crimping tool you can borrow and I know they sell the distributor coil type ends that will be needed for the coil end of the wires. A proper crimp will make it much easier to insert the wires into the coils. JAT
I think I have a loose screw behind the handlebars.
