I recently posted my problem about my Suzuki RF400 RVT 1998 Bandit shape motorcycle not starting when key in ignition also no onboard lights on i.e. Dashboard lights. I was informed and helped by FixYa bike mac's and experts. However my problem is that I urgently need to find out if the CDI Unit that I believe now is the cause can it be repaired??? It is a sealed unit. Can it be opened and will it keep on working as before??? Or do I have to purchase another and replace??? Please help. Thanking you all in advance. You guy's are great. keep up the good work.

A sealed CDI unit cannot be opened up for repair. Replace only.

SOURCE: 1995 Yamaha Virago 250 needs ignitor unit

Motorcycle dealers do not stock parts for bikes more than 10 years old. "Parts Dealers" buy the old parts from the motorcycle dealers and manufacturers and make them available online. Babbitt's is a very good source and can ship the part(s) to you. Babbitt's has an ignitor in stock.

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. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

SOURCE: kawasaki electrical fault,immobiliser not working

Wow...where to begin, I am not a professional mechanic...but I've been buying and rebuilding bikes for over a year now and I've encountered some of these issues.
Q: do you have the original key and ignition still in tact?

the fuel pump and choke you should hear activate when you turn on the ignition and/or press the start button...the fuel pump should be located in the gas tank, there should aslo be a single connector w/2 wires that attaches to the fuel pump...I'd suggest checking that FIRST, in a Kawasaki I dont believe that the F1 light blinks when the ignition is switched to off so do not let that be decieving to you...Another easy fix and hugely overlooked and misunderstood issue is the battery...by this It means that a bike will not have enough "stable power" to "fire" or "spark" a coil, so other than a new battery or a strong jump start you will be unable to determine whether or not there is an actual CDI or ignition issue to contend with...after checking and verifying those issues, please feel free to find me and I'd be happy to share the many small things I've had to contend with

All light working ok not starting feels like the battery is flat nothing happens all light bright thank you


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

My bike has some kind of electrical short. The lights, instruments, etc sometimes stay on after the key is turned off. I can crank the starter when this happens, but the ignition won't fire. I noticed...


The small black box is possibly a relay. It may be sticking on, if so it will need a new one. Tell the dealer the same story and it should be a quick fix
