Ordering plug wires...

Have any of you had a diagram that looks like this...



I'm trying to order new plug wires. But only two of the wires have part numbers. 7 and 9. Also its noteworthy that the #Required list, only list 7 & 9 as requiring one of each. Does that mean that 6 and 8, which are listed as cap assemblies are the other two plug wires? Do they come attached to the caps then? Because caps 5 and boot 4 come separately on the diagram, so this is confusing.

Please don't just guess or assume. Im looking for someone that knows for a fact or has ordered them before. This is for a 94 Honda Shadow VT600C VLX.

I have had this same issue with similar items. Not spark plug wires though. What I did to find the answer was looked in my manual for the years of the bikes production/ series. I then cross referenced the same item in your case plug wires from different years. Mine was a turn signal relay and the other years did list a part number for it.

lol hopefully that made sense, after i re read what i typed it might have gotten confusing.

I cross reference parts all the time just to find a better price on ebay also because sometimes parts listed for your bike will be few and expensive but a more common model with the same part will be cheaper just because it "fits" that bike

just some advice for you and any others that read that.
I just saved 15 dollars on a shift lever because i did that. Good luck though

Ok so I found the answer. In case anybody else has this problem, 6 & 8 which are listed as cap assemblies, include the wires. It's all one piece. Also it reconfirmed this when I did an image search of the part number. This particular site has pictures of parts in addition to the diagrams, very helpful.
