A lot of times when you look in the service manuals they tell you to replace with good unit and see if fixes problem. now this seems crazy because cdi units are usually a couple of hundred bucks and you can not return electrical parts. so what i have done in the past is put in ad on craigslist for someone with the same bike to come over and test their cdi on my bike and give them $10.00 -$20.00 for their trouble

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge most motorcycle CDIs have multiple wires/connections. The pinout could have the following:

  1. 2-4 wires from the pulse trigger. This is normally located beneath the magneto or in some cases a crank sensor;
  2. IGN B+12 coming from the ignition switch;
  3. IGN coil's negative terminal. The coil's positive terminal goes likewise to the IGN B+12;
  4. interlocks:
  • sidestand switch;
  • neutral switch;
  • clutch switch;
  • RUN (Engine OFF) switch.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Im not getting any spark from one of side of my 2 cyclinder kawasaki ninja 500 EX. Its an 1987. I have replaced the plug wires and the pickup coils. I switched the coil packs and both work. Im just not...


Hi,

To my knowledge, a 1987 Kawasaki EX500 uses a TCBI with digital advance to fire the ignition coils upon receipt of pulse from the trigger/pickup coils.

Since the pickup coils are new, and you have swapped the ignition coild, replace the high tension wires and checked/replace the spark plugs, the the only cmponent left is the CDI (electronic ignition system).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
