I got another set of stick coils and installed them today.  The bike fired right up and ran fine.  Side by side, the old sticks and new sticks are identical, so I have no clue why the first set was arcing.  Thanks for the help guys, especially, Tony.

If you care to burn the postage send them to me as I'd love to test them out to see if I can ascertain why the issue....

Problem solved! Apparently, I hadn't pushed them all the way down on the plugs. I wanted to test each one before sending them off to Tony, on cylinder 4 (easiest to get to) with the other 3 using the set of working sticks.  I noticed that it took a lot of effort, and I mean A LOT compared to the other coils, to get the coil fully seated.  All 4 took quite a bit of effort to seat.  Got all 4 of the "arcing" coils seated and no more arcing. I then swapped the valve cover seals over to the original coils and got it all buttoned up.  Thanks to everyone for their help.
