Why not use what you have.Is it possible to convert from a CDI unit to a coil? If so, Can you tell me the best coil to get? Thank You.
WHO is the one ripping people off !!Thank You BlueCollarBike,
Just trying to simplify things. Seems to me a coil would be better than a CDI, plus cheaper also. But I really don't know, I'm not a mechanic. Also, I'm not sure if I have a problem with my CDI. My bike would crank, then stop running. Crank again, then stop running. Then wouldn't crank at all. I'm running into all sorts of problems trying to swithch from Japanese to American. $7.00 for a $1.19 spark plug is rediculas, plus a $6.00 s/h charge on top of that.
well for future reference You should look at ngk-b6hs or champion L7J for a spark plug.Thank You BlueCollarBike,
The only place I knew of until I stumbled upon 'MotorBicycling.com' was where I bought the motor. They get $7.00 per plug plus $2.00 s/h. They get $21.00 per CDI, plus $5.00 s/h. If you buy both at the same time, you pay both s/h charges also. Their CDI's will only use a plug that has no cap. I was never able to find one that had no cap that was 14mm thread and 11mm reach. Thanks to 'Motorbicycling.com' My problems are being solved at a fraction of what it would have costed me. Thank You again.
You just twist it out, check this thread........http://motorbicycling.com/f3/spark-plug-wire-end-bicycle-motor-765.htmlOn my CDI that came with the engine kit the spark plug wire runs directly into the CDI box and there appears to be no way to remove it or open the CDI. How do you guys replace the original spark plug wire with this kind of setup?
