BEYOND THE UNICORN

yes that's right...beyond the mythical Brazilian CDI.... that unicorn of the black boxes....

 

who has the best CDI ? (not needing endless revs)

 

Pro-com?

BBR?

big gun?

blackbox?

Others?

IMO:

The best of the best is the most durable and reliable... OEM

But it depends on the application...

If you want rod breaking RPM try the BBR, just spin it up there, the best of the best for abusing valve springs.

It's not making any power up there but what the hell, it really revs.

if you desire low RPM torque enhancement you will need the Pro Com

My 2 cents

all hype then ? smoke, mirrors...?

 

no curve re-maping ?

no increase in HP or Torq ?

 

I cant seem to find any good data...no curve plots...no HP charts....

Xr100.com has a dyno chart you can look at that will rev up your 230f if that's what you like....

This forum has had plenty of feedback with respect to the Procom CDI and all have agreed the difference in off-idle and very-low power is easily noticeable.  It has the same impact as increasing initial advance and quickening the curve does to any lazily-timed engine.  This has a significant impact on low-compression engines like those of the 70s and 80s and our CRF150/230.  Please keep in mind a dyno can not and will not show changes to throttle feel and throttle response.

 

Two very reliable references are Adhonguy and Baja Trail Rider.  Both of these members have verified a noticeable impact on their engines.

 

As far as the best?  I like the Procom unit as it only raises the limit +200 RPM.

The Procom is best simply because it increases power without the rev limit being significantly increased. The BBR is not a good option unless you are saving for a rebuild down the road..

ESPECIALLY If you use BBR valve springs.

Then your opportunity for a major, expensive rebuild will be significantly increased!

Plus a nice long hike out of the deep woods is good for you also...,,
