XR 350 CDI Modification

Hi There,

 

i have a 1983 XR 350 and the CDI has failed.

 

I am modifying it to take the new XR 50 - 600 1995 one with the 4 and 2 pin set up and not the round 2 rows of 3

 

have checked the Wiring Diagram ... and all the same cables go to the correct same components. 

 

So changing the Pin out and also replacing my faulty Pulse Generator that I have coming from germany.

 

Will keep you posted as to how I go.

 

Thanks 

Westy!

update,

 

All Wiring converted to the New Pin out R & D & design all done. Marked up all my colour codes.

 

Purchased the following

  1. Racing CDI out of an XR 100-600 CDI ($25.00) That included a new coil, HT lead too!
  2. Picked up a set of wiring plugs for a Chinese branded GY6 4 pin and 2 pin female plug for ($4.00)
  3. Silicone insulating wiring plugs ($7.50)

Total Spend = $36.50

 

Compared to a rare 1983 XR 350 CDI = $190.00

 

Popped out all my wires and simply click them all in

 

 

Here is the Pin out I worked out.

Hi Westy69,

 

So how does the engine run with the new CDI unit?

 

 

Hi There,

 

Engine not at running stage yet. I have some other wear and tear stuff to deal with first. One the engine is back together. I will update.

 

My Kick start idler gear and bush are flogged out and it have chewed out the outer of my clutch housing.

 

i am confident it will all work very well.

 

Cheers

Westy
