'kay. Now, what's wrong with it ? Does the ignition coil spark if you remove the CDI input and ground the primary ?
motogen (author)  steveastrouk7 years ago
 yup idid the same thing you ve said its really the cdi unit
There aren't many things in a CDI that can go wrong - unless this is a full blown ECU. Can you get into the CDI unit ?

well im talking about cdi here and im asking if anyone knows how to repair it?
Can you open the case and see what state the circuit board is in ? ?

actually i was just asking if anyone knows how to do it,i was just looking for a second opinion if what im doing on repairing a busted cdi unit,it can be repaired,ive done it lots of time,and you can use it on any kind of motorcycle,and its as good as new
Well to repair it, you find out what's broken, its probably possible to fix it, if its been put together with normal parts.
motogen (author)  steveastrouk7 years ago
not  whats broken but what not working or where the busted parts is?its little bit tricky  to repair,you must have the right tools to open it without doing any damage at the parts inside
The most likely busted part is the output transistor, the thing responsible for dumping the charge into the ignition coil. It'll be on the circuit board and it may well be connected to the case for heatsinking.

im sorry,but on all cases i ve encountered,the only problem with those but cdi is the the one that is called mylar capacitor,the only parts that is responsible on passing power to the ignition coil,if thatpartsgive ups you will have 0 reading of electricity,meaning that your ignition coil cuold not perform becuase the cdi failed to give him any voltage to release for the spakplugs 
If you know the answer to your own question don't ask it....

My experience differs from yours.

im having problem with my cdi on my motorcycle do you know how to repair it
.  Anyone who is smart enough to have 314 Best Answers should be able to figure that out.
That sounds very similar to an insult to me.
.  Only if you claim to be a mind reader.
