The CB250 RS unit should be similar. The FT500 lump was actually derived from the XR/XL500 dirt bikes, so if you can find one of those, that may help. There was also a U.S. version of the FT500 called the Ascot, so you might try checking out U.S. websites.

Pulse generator


Take off exhaust, left bracket, side cover, then you see 2 pulse gen. around main gear, take the gear off, anscrew pulse generators.

I just do not know, why do you want to change them, usually they do not die, post a story, why do you think, they are bad.

It is a toss up. You can check the pulse generator with an Ohm meter. A nice dealer can give you the specification. You can test a CDI box with an Ohm meter , it can test good , and still be bad. The only good way to test a CDI is part swapping with another working bike. Most dealers will not let you return an electrical part and there is a restocking fee.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On Asian versions of an 84 Honda XR200R, the CDI unit has six wires:
  • blue/yellow - pulse generator
  • black - to ignition coil
  • black/white - engine stop switch;
  • green - ground;
  • green/white - pulse generator
  • black/red - exciter/charging coil at stator.

The ignition coil has 2 wires:
  • green - ground;
  • black - to CDI

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Hi,I've a 98 Fireblade and can't get a spark


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, there are only 2 wires from the ignition pulse generator:
  • yellow - pulsating 0.5 VAC when cranking; and
  • white/yellow - ground.
A couple more of initial checks:
  • IGN +12 on the black/white wires of the ignition coils;
  • IGN +12  on the 3 wires of the engine stop relay other than the red/orange;
  • 0 volts on the red/orange (red/white) wire from the BAS (bank angle sensor).
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYA.
