Has anyone else had problems with the cdi's?
Hi Dublergofast, good to see other people from Ontario here,!!I,m from just north of Newmarket but work in the city.
If you followed the directions from the manufacturer to wire up your kill switch thats mounted on the throttle that will kill your CDI and burn out the magneto in short order. The best and correct way to wire up is to forget using the killswitch altogether. Wire up the blue wire from CDI to blue wire from engine ,black from CDI to black from engine and cap off the white wire. You can put a switch in between the blue wires to kill the power from the CDI.You can get the little metal switch from Canadian Tire auto dept and mount it in a little plastic pill box or something. I will post some pictures of my setup in a day or 2. This setup will prevent any more problems with burning out CDI and magnetos.
