When it comes to cars I've always tried to stick with the same brand of wires that I get spark plugs, but as far as bikes go I'm not sure but I would assume its the same way... So my advice whatever brand plugs try to find that same brand of wires, if not some companies have sister companies or sister brands

Unless life also hands you sugar and water your lemonade is going to suck

Coil concept still applies. I have an '04 as well and I believe Denso coils might be the best out of all of them. Pick up some NGK Iridium plugs as well.

you only need to replace a coil when it fail. its not a maintenance replace at XXXX km type part.
