SOURCE: 95 rf 900 cdi

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. The manual for your bike is there. It covers 1994 to 1997 bikes. Normally there is a wiring diagram in the back of repair manuals. Other than that, the wires should be color coded. Just match up the colors.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

SOURCE: please help I have a 1980's model susuki dr 250

I have a 83 DR 250 and i'm not getting enough voltage to create a spark, all I can suggest is that you check your battery and make sure its at full flavour. Check and see if you are getting any voltage prior to the ignition coil (should be 18-35v). If you suspect battery then try clutching it as the alternator moving faster might give you enough to get her going. Also check all your connections and earths. Earth wires are often overlooked and can cause you just as many problems as the actives. So give that a go and get back to me mate. Cheers

After changing the spark plugs, and riding the bike for about10 minutes, I heard a back fire , and the bike started smoking, and gasoline leaking throught the tail pipes.

When you drove it for 10 minutes did it work & run perfect without any missing? One cylinder possibly started missing backfired and then maybe the carb flooded some how. I would pull both plugs first. Have a look at the plugs, then you will be able to tell which one was missing (wet with fuel). Check compression on each cylinder and then check the carb. I hope this helps.

This could be a bad plug wire,plug,connection at the coil,or the carbs may be out of synch.While running the bike,preferably at night,use a spray bottle and spray water on the plug wires and see if you notice any arching,or if the engine starts to miss.If so,..then time for some plug wires.

Can't Start 1981 Yamaha SR250

find a running sr 250 and swop his cdi unit with yours if the bike runs, fine. if not put his cdi back in and try again. if the good bike now starts it will indicate that your cdi is faulty. the cdi is located under the tank inside the frame. don't buy a second hand cdi unless you can test it on a working bike. they are very expensive and you don't want to buy a dud

How to test CDI unit for KTM65 2009 to diagnose if faulty or not.

If you are able to use a digital volt meter and work your backwards from spark plug wire to coil to cdi to stator you can figure out where voltage stops.thats a fairly newer bike unless you really submerged that bike under water i dont think its the cdi could be coil wire it could be want to check or change the cheaper parts before you go right to cdi because there not cheap.I have a yamaha banshee 350 and she was breaking up real bad.I thought because it was only happining on top end that the cdi was breaking down or stator was going bad.Found out with meter it was the coil wires and spark plug boots.These items have to have a certain amount of resistance or the do not conduct correctly.And spark plug wires and boots are not that exspensive.So thats why I say start from sparkplug boot and work your way back.Try that and Good Luck.

Susuki LT-80 ATV will not run, getting fuel to the carburator, spark plug is sparking. Will run for a second or two after its been sitting a while, but will not continue to run.

i had the same problem with mine.turned out it was the cdi unit.(the brain).Here are some things to check.possible worn piston and rings spark plug loose and or ignition cable not pushed on spark plug properly.also check the condition of the spark plug a bad earth cable.look for black cable grounded to the engine(right side) damaged reed valve check,clean carb(may have partial jet blockage) check air filter for dirtiness start with the spark plug first.that can tell you alot about the engine itself and then google spark plug symptoms good luck.these bikes are great but dont take much for them to not run right

Idles high and misses when cold. after you run it for a while it runs normal

You didn't say whether your bike was fuel injected or carbureted. A fuel injected bike or a carbed bike with the enricher pulled out will idle high. It is supposed to. Now, it should not miss though. It might be time for a new set of spark plugs. The enricher runs a very rich mixture and will foul a plug if you run it too long. I always tell people to only run the enricher just long enough so you can keep the bike running with the hand throttle. Turn the enricher off as soon as possible to prevent fouling a plug. If the bike is fuel injected, you'll have to take it back to the dealer to have it adjusted.

Good Luck

My bike was running badly so i had a plug change

If there is a problem with the bike missing, a power commander wont solve any problem. I would suggest find the problem and fix it before fitting the commander.
A miss may be in the ignition such as a coil lead, plug cap resister, plug cap.etc
If it always happens after it warms up, it could be jetting too rich.
A full service is a broad term and may not include tests of all items.
If they merely checked the air element and it looked clean, without replacing it, this may cause rich running.
Did they adjust valve clearances?
Does it have the standard exhaust?
