dont know where to get cdi but i see you are from indiana michigan border where abouts im just north of elkhart in union mi i have a cdi for a 570 exciter and the wires are the same as on my 540xlv plug are diffrent though and i was looking through one of my parts mags and they dont even list yours so yuo might have to get one from yam dealer if you are close enough you can colme over and take a look at the cdi i have to see if they look the same and maybe you could hard wire it to your sled and see if it will work or call yam dealer and see if it will work if it will you can have it free always ready to help local sledders out email me and i will give you my phone number if your interested or can find out if it will work for you

hey zagg check with your bud with the exciter and see if the cdi has these color wires 1 orange plug 1brown plug 1black/whitestripe plug then theres a plug with 3 wires 1isblack 1is white/red stripe 1 brown/white stripe like i said this is for a 570 exciter but the wires are the same color as on my 87 yam xlv 540 i gave 20 bucks for it on ebay brand new and as i said if you want to try to wire it in you can have it to see if it will make that yam run if he is not interested in doing that ask if he wants to sell it

Sorry corv, we havnt had much time to get online.

No that box didnt work but i really appreciate you trying to help, it must be his stator or something.
The night we got the cdi from you we tried it, then me and oake went out to ride i was following him across a field and he stopped and turned just as i hit full throttle and i slid right past him into a river. bleh! so i spent all night tearing my sled apart and cleaning and draining. Then Oake and I had to go out of town to a bass fishing seminar thingy, and now we are both sick as dogs, i think his mom fed me some poison  



anyways ill be spending time with my girlfriend till i can ride again heh. hopefully tomorrow ill feel better.

If you are still looking for a cdi or any other late or new model used parts. I ran past a great guy in Wisconsin. KB Enterprises in Fort Atkinsion. 920-563-6895 ask for Craig. He will ship anywhere...Cheap.
