    I’ve got over 1,000 miles on my 01 since switching to Tom’s CDI. Bike runs great. My old CDI was in decent condition, but I wanted the tach output. I dismantled my bike over the winter, so it took me a long time to get it put back together. Tom would call from time to time to see how it was working and even shipped me one with upgrades he made (since so much time had passed). He also answered some questions about an ignition system problem I was having (unrelated to CDI).

    So A+ for service. Thanks Tom!

    Tom, does the stock unit limit the RPM?
    Is your 9,000 RPM the same, higher?
    I hope this is a very successful venture for you!

    EDIT: I just noticed your website shoes 9,500 RPM limit for your unit, but you say 9,000 on this thread?
    What is the +1 deg. max advance for?
    Thanks!

    the stock CDI has no limit, instead they tell you not to exceed a certain mph with stock gearing. my rev limit is actually 9014 I think. +1° is just for possible performance since this engine elsewhere has a couple more degrees available.

    Thanks Tom.
    Just wondering...9,000+ just seems a little high for a bottom-shelf single.
    But I don't know that, obviously.
    Would you use more of that advance with a cam? Head work?
    How 'bout stock and +3?

    That doesn't come close to answering what I asked.
    But that's OK...

    Oh, I thought I had answered. The answer is no. The point is if it is 11 hp and you make it 11.5 hp what have you gained?

    I ordered and installed a CDI from Waterloo/Tom for an '87 I'm restoring. The installation was a breeze - It took less than a minute - Completely plug-n-play... The bike now runs great and I'm completely thrilled with this purchase. I highly recommend going this route if you're having problems with your CDI.

    Tom, I agree with you said, but you still have not answered my questions...did you read them?
    If you just don't want to answer or don't know, that's fine...

    9,000 is about what I'd expect. Singles can get into five digits (although rocker arms tend to start breaking as you approach 10k, stuff that revs faster is all direct shim-bucket valves), and I seem to remember my Grom's hard fuel cut was at 9500rpm. Although with the stock muffler and cam the engine's power totally signs off much past 7500 or so, winding it to the limit is totally pointless.
