How easy is it to kill a CDI box?

Recommended Posts

While diagnosing a bad ignition system I accidentally touched the connector to the coil from the CDI with 12V it made a decent spark i did it a couple times like a dumby, i was trying to test the coil but i touched the CDI side of the connection by accident.:) Im just wondering what the likelyhood is that i fried the CDI box? I cant test it bacause it turns out the stator is the problem. so i wont know until I replace the faulty stator.

The fried CDI box would make a very nice looking Paperweight :)

Not knowing which wire exactly you touched, the schematic of the CDI, and the position of the moon at the time, it would be impossible for anyone to tell you if it is bad or not. The only way is to try it and see if it works. You might get lucky, or not...
