Has anybody purchased/used one of these Arrowhead IHA6017 cdi boxes?? I tried 2 different ones of these on a 1987 and 1994 XR200R, and the bikes won't even start. Bikes just pop and backfire, had to put the old cdi's back on. I noticed when I ordered the boxes they stated "advance ignition curves" in the specs. The box is also much bigger than the stocker and won't fit in the rubber mount. I didn't mess with moving around the timing to try and get these to work....I just sent them back.
I’ve got a 2006 crf250x that needs a new cdi unit. I’ve found a cdi unit from a 2010 crf250x twin pipe.
Will the 2010 cdi unit work? I’ve seen on some threads here that the 04-07 bikes can use the same cdi. Is that correct?
Thanx for your responses.
Hey guys, hoping someone out there is able to help me.
I have a 2005 wr450f that I am overhauling/motarding. I'm planning on running a full D/C circuit and will be fully re-wiring the bike and loom myself. I purchased a Baja Designs Regulator/Rectifier and have completed their stator mod successfully. My only question is there is a wire that runs straight off the white stator wire that goes directly into the CDI unit as a red/white wire after the plug. What does this do? Does it need to stay as A/C? Will joining the 2 stator circuits with the Baja Designs upgrade mean there is too much A/C current running into the CDI if I leave it before the regulator/rectifier? Will add the wiring diagram with the wire highlighted later tonight when I get home.
Thanks in advance,
I have a 2006 YZ125 that I bought new back in 06, I have went through the whole bike recently and everything is in good shape. Checked all the electrical system and it is up to spec. cleaned the carb spotless inside and out. Stock jetting always worked fine where I live.
So for about 4 years now I haven’t ridden the bike but a few times and now I noticed that the bike isn’t running right when you snap the throttle it hesitates too long and just doesn’t have the throttle response it had before. Also when I looked at the head it was pitted some from detonation.
I have read in here that a few people have had cdi trouble on the YZ125 and 250, if you have can you share your expirence of a bad cdi with me? I’m hesitant about buying one cause you can’t return electronics even if they are faulty also if anybody has a cdi box 2005-18 they would sell let me know, thanks
