Well I talked to one of my customers today (he owns a scooter shop) and we are bartering :) he is going to see if he can find me an older cdi thatthey use on the chopper scooters and a battery and charger for my light. If this CDI works better than the old one dose will let u guys know and will get the info off of it ....these cdi's seem to wear out after a little over 1000 miles .

Plug gap can have an effect on the life of the CDI. The larger the gap, the more internal heat generated and heat kills electronics.

is it normal for these things to burn out after 80 to 100 miles?
