'kay. Now, what's wrong with it ? Does the ignition coil spark if you remove the CDI input and ground the primary ?

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 to repair it, you find out what's broken, its probably possible to fix it, if its been put together with normal parts.

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
