Many small petrol engines fitted to modern motor bikes use a capacitor discharge ignition (CDI) to improve performance and enhance reliability. The only downside of this is that if the CDI ignition module fails, a replacement can be very expensive. This kit will replace many failed factory units and is designed for engines with separate generator & trigger coils and which generate a positive high voltage to charge the capacitor before firing. Most CDI ignitions operate this way, but there are variations. Luckily, this CDI module uses cheap and readily available parts and is worth a try before shelling out lots of hard-earned cash for a genuine replacement module. Supplied with solder masked PCB and overlay, case and components. Some mounting hardware required.
