Do you mean CDI?
Hi , my name is cole and I am completely new to dual sport, I recently bought a black and red 1988 yamaha tw 200 which I really love. The bike rides great but ever here and there it will run really rough like it wants to stall it starts to pop then bog down if I give it gas. The carb looks literally brand new. I have read that this could be symptoms of a bad CPI ... Let me know what you guys think. Thanks

At this point, I wouldn't worry about it being the CDI. It was a problem for some 87's but not for 88's. It's probably the carb and it sounds like a lean problem. I would run some Lucus Deep System Fuel Cleaner in it. (3 or 4oz to the tank) Now just run it for a couple days and let the stuff work. Put a gas filter inline between the petcock and carb if it doesn't have one. You might also check the air/fuel mixture screw. They come from the factory lean, correct adjustment should end up around 2 1/2 turns out. Have you gone through the rest of the bike? Such as a valve adjustment? If the plug is good and valves have been adjusted, go ahead with the carb adjustment. The carb is the last thing you do in a tune up. Welcome to the forum Cole. Lots of good folks here. Keep us posted if you have any other questions.
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
