Hi and welcome to FixYa,

As in most bikes, the CDI is dependent on the other parts of the ignition system. Check the connection / status of the other parts:

  • terminal of the ignition coil - should have a pulsating high AC voltage from the CDI. Tested alone, the ignition coil should have 0.1 ~ 0.3 ohms from terminal to ground and 3 ~ 5 kilo ohms high voltage to ground;
  • pulser coil - should have very low pulsating AC voltage fed to the CDI. Depending on the brand would be 50 ~ 500 ohms;
  • IGN + 12 - supplied to the CDI through the Engine Stop Switch;
  • ground - ground.

Postback results of checks.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 1999 DFI optimax 225 hp and it has no spark on number 2 cilinder, swapped coiled and no change , would it be the CDI unit ?

Yes the CDI unit or the ignition pickup is defective as long as you are sure the wiring is not damaged.

Yamaha 90/2stroke runs fine at revs but will only idle on 1 cylinder

Hi, Wayne and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. 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. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
Good luck and have a nice day.

I have a 05' brute force. It starts and idles great but when i drive it misses out and when i let off the gas it backfires. Any ideas why? I have cleaned the carbs and changed spark plugs

Do you have a multi-meter and can check your cdi? The cdi is known as an igniter. It's what actually sends the signal to the ignition coil to fire down to the plug. If you can test your cdi and let me know, I'll see if I can find the specs - also, are you able to check your timing?

04 Polaris predator, I bought used last week. I put a new battery and new carb on it. It doesn't have power, won't start, and no spark with kick starter. Dead. Fuses,wires, look good. Any ideas

Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

How do I replca the cdi unit

straight forward, changing over one wire at a time. I'd buy a service manual, it will offer test procedures to be sure it's the cdi that's bad (the most expensive part of an ignition), and other tests to be sure a new cdi won't up and burn out.

Look for a coil for 1981 suzi GS550L

You can narrow the search by looking for any twin lead 12 volt points ignition coil, as long as you dont get a cdi, or electronic ignition coil, any point coil will do the job

Hi, Pete_bradbur parts swapping is common with most motorcycles when it comes to interchangeable or compatible parts from one model with another except for CDI's they are year-make-model specific the best thing to do is call your local Dealership Parts Department or a reputable independent shop. If your location is not near a shop then go online and find a parts catalog or "FICHE" and match part numbers depending on your criteria.

Hi, I'm having a go at restoring a CB1. However, I'm getting no spark. The motor is turning over but no spark is visible. Any ideas to solve would be appriciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, there are several interlocks that have to be factored in for the Spark Unit (CDI/Igniter) to work when cranking:
  • sidestand switch;
  • clutch switch;
  • engine stop switch.
Try to check, clean, or temporarily bypass as may be necessary to test CDI. Additionally, check:
  • one terminal of the ignition coil has an IGN +12; while
  • the other terminal should have a pulsating voltage when cranking.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
