SOURCE: 83 yamaha tt600e no spark

The CDI unit on the 83 model (TT600) is located under the fuel tank and suffers from heat
exposure.The solution is to get specialist help to open up the sealed CDI unit and repair/
replace internal connections (which are readily available electronic components)
When you re-install it put some heat shielding material there to protect it and this
will be OK as repair will utilise stronger parts,I think.
Later models have the CDI unit moved to the head-stem area.

(this info from a Non-mechanic who remembers what was done to his TT in Australia, many years

SOURCE: I have a 1985 xv700 virago. one of my plugs are

follow the plug wire back to the coil and see if there are any breaks, if not might switch coil with the other one and see if the other plug now misfires, if so replace the coil, most cdi problems are not intermittent, typically they either work, or they dont.

could also be a valve sticking. Do you have the clamps on the carb? It shouldn't pop off the intake.

A 2004 bear tracker and rebuilt carb. I used my lawnmower battery to crank the engine and while running, the CDI box began to smoke. with battery dissconnected,the CDI box continued to smoke. why?

Hi, Donald you may have fried your CDI box and it needs to be tested and or replaced for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

You can bypass a capacitor-discharge ignition (CDI) box temporarily for troubleshooting for a 2003 grizzlie 4 wheeler 4x4.replaced the stator and coil still wont start

Hi Vickie the CDI cannot be by passed the signal from the stator is different to the signal required to power the coil. The only way to bypass is change the whole system which would be costly and difficult to source parts.

No fire to coil changed stator checked ac voltage with meter on 3 white and brown and green wires voltage to rectifier no power on red or white wire to cdi,changed cdi box still no voltage on coil

Do you have a teather switch ? I would suggest start by checking the resistance of the on off switch . Then procede to the cdi relay. If you do not know how to test such items let me know and I will break it down step by step.
