Question about Suzuki Motorcycles
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.

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!

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

SOURCE: what kind of oil do I use?
you will need one quart or one liter of synthetic high performance suspension fluid [fork oil]. go to any autozone store and they will sell u what u need.
