ZXR250 CDI PROBLEM

Hi, my 1990 zxr250 is only getting power to one coil, switched coils and same thing. Im led to believe this could come down to the CDI box! Has anyone successfully fixed this prob??

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If somehow, the CDI could be opened up, then component level repair maybe tried. There would be 2 final transistors that actually do the switching; 1 for each coil. Offhand, it would appear that 1 of those 2 is faulty. Otherwise, replacement is the only option.

Incidentally, in some versions, a fault in the tachometer could also cause one of the CDI's output to fail.

Postback results of tests.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I have 1990 suzuki gsx 600f with no spark but does crank i have tried cdi box as i have 2 of the same bikes plugs seem fine checked all the wiring i don't know what it could be


Hi, Anonymous 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.

I have a 1990 CDI-box and need to know whate wire


Have fun, I don't know why it can't be as simple as just install the part and put it back together. You will have to swap wires around until you find the right combination.
Hope this helps.

I need help i have a 1990 yz 125 i have fire from the scatter plate to the cdi box i also have fire from cdi box what i need to know is how to hook it up to the kill switch and the coil


you run the positive lead from the cdi to the positive lead on the coil.... then somewhere between the negative lead on the coil and the frame/engine ground you splice in the kill switch.........what that does is breaks the ground when you push the kill switch which then kills the spark to the motor

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Just to verify and eliminate the ignition coils, tests for it are:
  • one terminal would have an IGN +12;
  • the other terminal would have a pulsating voltage when cranking;
  • passive test, primary (+ to -), resistance 3 ~ 5 ohms; while
  • any of the primary terminal to HT would be 15 ~ 18 kilo ohms.
The CDI could not be tested since it is a sealed unit. The only way to confirm if it is a CDI is to check the external factors and if they are present yet no spark, then it would be the CDI:
  • the CDI gets its triggers from the pulser coils;
  • the output of the pulser coils would be very very low ACV;
  • it would be preferable to use an analog/needle type multitester for the flickering pulser voltage;
  • the CDI also needs a "go signal" from the interlocks together with the starter relay;
  • try exercising the sidestand when cranking;
  • verify neutral light is on;
  • try starting with the clutch lever pulled.
Another possibility to consider is that the starter is consuming most of the power from the battery leaving very little for the ignition system to use and/or the ignition switch has some loose connection. The IGN +12 to the coil terminal should also test this possibility.

Please postback results / updates of tests performed.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

No spark


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, the problem is 'no spark' yet the engine cranks. Generally, to consider are:
  • pulser coil (least likely);
  • ignition coil (likely);
  • interlocks (likely);
  • CDI (most likely).

Offhand, the CDI would be the main suspect. Since the CDI is sealed, it is not possible to do component level checks. The only way to check if the CDI is good is to check the external connections; if they are good and yet no spark, then the CDI is bad.

How to check the above:
  • to check the pulser coil, measure the low voltage coming from it using an analog/needle type AC voltmeter. While cranking, it should show a flickering low voltage;
  • to check the ignition coil, use a continuity tester. Primary should measure 3 ~ 5 ohms while primary to the high voltage end would measure 15 ~ 18 kilo ohms;
  • the ignition coil has 1 terminal connected to the IGN +12 while the other terminal is connected to the CDI. This should have a pulsating voltage when cranking.
  • all the interlocks could be checked with a continuity tester. Please note that most interlocks has a diode connected in series with their wires.
The interlocks include:
  • clutch switch;
  • side stand switch;
  • neutral light switch.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

No spark


There are a # of things that can take your spark out, first I would see if you have power to your ignition coil (100V+). If none there you need to isolate your ignition switch (unplug it or take it out of the equation) and jump your starter solenoid manually or try pushstarting the bike. If still nothing check for voltage going into your CDI box, if none check for voltage out of your stator (over 100V) and your trigger or pulse coil (over 3V). If you find voltage at the stator and not the trigger replace the trigger and vice versa. If there is voltage for both replace CDI box (but be cautious to verify good ground for CDI box and ignition coil). If you find voltage out of your CDI box (over 100V) replace your ignition coil. Good luck!
