CDI specs.

Just in case anyone wants to know here is what I have found for Honda RFVC CDI boxes.

boxes: (The GB500 uses the MK6 CDI)

CDI part # idle advance full advance

MG3-003 6 BTDC below 1200 31 BTDC at 4000

MK6-671 8 BTDC below 1200 21 BTDC at 4000

MG2-871 11 BTDC below 1200 31 BTDC at 4000

MG2-891 11 BTDC below 1200 31 BTDC at 4000

MG2-892 11 BTDC below 1200 31 BTDC at 4000

Are one of those an XR650L CDI?

The part numbers look too old.


I did a quick search online and found MG2 CDI fits XL600, MG3 fits XR500, They are old numbers for sure. I put a later MK2 88 XR600 CDI in my XL, it was supposed to have a better curve according to the eBay seller. I can't tell much difference.

These are listings for the xbr500/600 and gb500.

I think a ex400 quad will plug in an work also.

Good stuff guys.

Can you get the numbers for the XR650L CDI?

      This replaces part 9 in the exploded parts diagram for the 85 86 87 xr600r.

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
