Kaw FC420V-AS15 Spark Plug Wire

Will the plug wire unplug from the coil?  It appears that it will but I don't want to ruin the coil if it does not.  I just need a new plug wire.  The old one shorted out against the muffler shield.

    So does the coil still work? I know on some you have to replace the coil if you pull out the Ht lead.

    Yes it will if OEM but it is unscrewed not just simply pulled out. Just replace one lead last week that that would not stay on the plug because of terminal failure. Install new 7 mm high tension, straight boot and a straight (180 degree) crimp on terminal.
     
    Costed the customer less than $5 instead the price of a new coil and my cost from Jack's which would have been $53 plus SHC then I would tacked on 30% as the mark-up. Now of course there was the shop labor and the other repairs that were needed.

    The coil still works.
     
    The next time I have to replace the wire I will try to unscrew it.
     
    I covered the bad part of the wire with 6 layers of heat shrink.  Seems to be working for now.
