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
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.
