    Does anyone rebuild the 1987 CDI ?

    My CDI is shot, the bike runs good with with the CDI box wrapped tightly with heavy wire and 2 large steel washers but if I take them off, it sputters, pops and bangs etc. Does anyone know who might rebuild or fix these?

    Most likely you will destroy it more trying to take it apart and repair it. Go with Sthrnromr's suggestion. The gentleman who makes those is also a member here.

    Are you kidding? Tom Bauer got my '87 CDI working well. He has 2 of the 3 stickies at the top of technical help.
