So I was up north and I needed to replace the boot on my 1998 Indy 500, a local shop sold me a NGK replacrment boot for $2.50. It was easy to install no problems. When I was back home talking to the local Powersports dealers parts guy he said that I needed to use a $35 Polaris boot, cause it has some special resistance charicteristic and if I used NGK it would blow my CDI.
Is this for real , or just selling me some expensive parts?

Its a fuji Indy 500....they have had the same CDI for years. He's talking out his butt

this is the correct OEM p/n you need

SKU: 4020129
RESISTOR PLUG CAP 2 $4.72

I have a complete cdi I would sell for 35 bucks

He's just trying to get your money. That's all I put on sleds is the NGK ends, and never had any problems. NGK does make them in different resistances, but doesn't really matter much on a stock machine.

Thanx 4 the input, I will go get some NGK boots for my other Polaris sleds. I like the BS Meter, wonder if it comes in white face for my Classic 600.

on the newer cdi sleds i would make sure you get the correct ohm resistance cap, you dont have to get the 35$ ones from polaris, just make sure you get the same ohm as what you have, i beleive they are 5k ohm resistance.
