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.

This is a 1984 1200 that will not start and back fires thru the exhaust and carbs

Back fire is an indication that the bike is firing incorrectly.
Your timing chain is probably stretched, due to the year.
inproper valve timing due to stretched timing chain will make the bike backfire.

I have other thoughts like stuck valves or inproper sparkplug wires on wrong plug,
i always start with easier and less expensive method.
1st check your sparkplug wires to make sure they are on the right plug.
2nd pull sparkplugs and do compression and leakdown test.
3rd pull componets to see if valves are opening and closing, (valve clearance check)
4th if valves are good, then timing chain is probably stretched.
5th if timing chain and timing marks are good, and valves are good, then proceed to
testing the signal generator to make sure your getting a signal to the cdi,
6th if you have a signal to cdi, the cdi tells which coil to fire. either # 1&4 or # 2&3.
if signal generator is working, but coils aren't firing right then its the cdi.
obviously your coils work because its firing, just back firing.

Thats all it could be from easiest to hardest.
Good luck and have a great weekend.

What causes cdi box to fail? the big red ran fine,but when trying to resart it the next day it will not fire. Also how do I know if it is truely the cdi box?

many things can cause a cdi box to fail they are hard to diagnose. but as far as testing goes u can use an multimeter to test ur resistence in the stator and coil if they test good its the cdi. or even a bad ground can cause it to loose fire.

At idle and half throttle the front two cylinders dont fire

The year of the magna can make a difference on the answer. Early magna's had two cdi boxes. Later models had one.The front two cylinders use the same coil and possibly the same cdi box.I suspect a bad coil since since it operates both cylinders. Compare the readings between the two coils or switch them to see if the problem changes from front to back. This will work for duel cdi box models too. If these checks show no change in the front cylinders not firing, You probably need a new pulse pick up(the cdi equivalent of points.

I have a 1984 Honda X200R and it's not getting a

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On Asian versions of an 84 Honda XR200R, the CDI unit has six wires:
  • blue/yellow - pulse generator
  • black - to ignition coil
  • black/white - engine stop switch;
  • green - ground;
  • green/white - pulse generator
  • black/red - exciter/charging coil at stator.

The ignition coil has 2 wires:
  • green - ground;
  • black - to CDI

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have 1983 200 e big red-no spark

I would first try a new plug, then coil. If this is the original coil, it is not unlikely that is your problem. Check and see if a small engine shop near you might have a tester for a coil. That might help, you can also find a coil on ebay pretty cheap.
