CDI Is It AC Or DC




What do you think about this video?

vespadano1979: All you have to do is look at the wiring diagram for the scooter and see if the power is coming from the battery or the stator. HA HA HA!!!. Just kidding Chinese garbage never comes with manuals.

roan185: why cant i just cut a wire i have 2 cdi's witch wire i need to cut?

richboytyson: i bought a performance cdi for my gokart before i even watched this video, i put on a dc cdi but it should have been ac, my gokart will not start most of the time but when it does it has very little power(hardly enough to go 3mph), not even with the original cdi, please help.

monsterGY6: don't cut any wires, change the CDI

monsterGY6: it will not work

nikka hilabtanun: I HAVE A REALLY SMALL BIKE FROM ASIA. AS CB TWISTER. WONDERING WHAT KIND OF RACING CDI I CAN USE

jake hughes: hey.. i was just planning to get a new cdi for my scooter, and i was wondering how to fir it .. ( i pretty much know nothing ) would be great if you could give me a tip or two :P ty

66kerekes: I have an old klf 185 bayou from 1985,the cdi looks to be a dc type,but im not sure,I have a no spark condition,so how would I be able to troubleshoot this problem?

magnusthommesen: I bought a new CDI for my Boatian retro 50cc scooter. The old CDI connector has 5 pins, 3 up and 2 down.(that leaves an empty spot in the middle..) My problem is that the new CDI has 2 pins up and 3 down, so it wont work. What can i do? do you think it will work if i switch 2 of the wires?

2vv1: very informative. thanks!

panter244: If your moped has a batterie that is DC why shoud a CDI then be AC? Srry for bad english

jonny82888: i just got an cdi but the connectors are diff. the one i bought is a blue ac fired. i was thinking of cutting the wires an use butt connectors

Alain William Luchavez: which is better? please reply, thanks a lot!!!

devsaa hefalump: where did you get the plugs for the unit?

bwrodczek: now DC CDIs are small as AC ones.

Chris Russell: nice video that doesnt help me, dammit. i got some wacked out thing with 3 wires only, ones earthed,then to module/coil(combined unit) one went to kill switch, the third went to the module/coil. then one day it decided it would only run with the kill wire being grounded too (?!?!?!?!), so now im here scratching my head watching vids :) not a gy6 or any thumpie type engine, btw.

roan185: im form holland and i am wandering witch cabel i need to cut tu get more power from my engine i have a ac i tink ( 2 plugs in the 2 end 3 plugs in the 4)

cdi1105: @monsterGY6 HI I KNOW ON HOW TO MAKE THIS CDI'S IM FROM PHILIPPINES IM SELLING MY DIAGRAM

ffnlzqf: I have a taotao cy50-t3 49cc scooter what cdi unit do I need

star boii: so if i have a dc cdi that will give me a smiller spack that a ac cdi

mdaljev1: And to explain connections on 6 pin CDI, on 4 contact connector is connected ignition coil, and pickup! Sometimes the fourth remaining is connected to side stand (so the engine stops, when stand is down), or to the clutch bell (electronic restriction of speed to 45-50km/h), on the 2 contact connector, colored wire is capacitor charging coil behind magneto, and black is ground wire!

SAMUEL APTHORPE: Hi I have a beeline veloce gt 50 and I was wanting to know if me moped was ac or dc I have tired a ac cdi unit however it didn't work but in the video it says my moped is ac because it has 2 wires going in to the 2 pin plug. So I don't know what to do, can you help me???

BallsonPHACE: great vid. also considering that there are wires from the a/c generator that run to the cdi on my daelim vt 125-- leads me to believe its an a/c cdi. Its also small like the one in the video. Do these gy6 boxes work on daelims??? they look identical

monsterGY6: Really easy, simply unplug the old one and plug in the new one. It can only plug in one way.

MorganouPsGunz: Hi, as seen in the video have two cdi with son, is what cdi is delivered with son? because I really need to son? /:

huang Terry: Hi,Steven, That's good way to know the different, But you can show the wiring diagram That's better!! oooooooooooo

LuckyStrike92x: @monsterGY6 haha you want that we buy new ones from your hompage hahaa

gerard blokzijl: i net cdi voor v-clic 139qmb i dot no wet

mdaljev1: well, all CDI's are AC, because, behind magneto are 6 electromagnetic cores! 4 of them are alternator, 2 of them are coils for charging capacitor inside CDI! So, tell me, how can CDI be DC, where you will get voltage enough to charge capacitor?? You cant, if you rapidly tap wires connected on ignition coil, on 12V battery, you get no spark, voltage must be way higher! btw. scooter can run without battery connected, nor alternator connected. cheers!

8bitsOfThis: South africans are cool

cdi1105: @roan185 HI I KNOW ON HOW TO MAKE THIS CDI'S IM FROM PHILIPPINES IM SELLING MY DIAGRAM

paraglidermx: Take it out and look..

paraglidermx: One cdi is AC circuitry other is DC also your scoot is set up for only one it was designed for from factory,,unless you change the harness and a bunch of components.

Ana Ramirez: hi my name is erik . i have one cuestion for you? my scooter cdi ac but one is lost why.

nissias: will this fit the Znen 125T-K with BN-152QMI engine?

Marvin Santiago: Hi there, very interesting your vid, I have a performance cdi on my atv but it has an extra red wire coming out of it (additionally to the 2 plugs thay you are showing here). I just rewired everything but can't figure out were that red wire is supposed to be connected to. If you need a picture I will gladly e mail it to you.

Salmen Messaoudi: what the diffrence to use between AC or DC CDI and how you can test your cdi ?
