1200 xl cdi
I have another CDI question....
I have a new to me 1998 (non powervalve) XL that has had some work done. The guy I bought it from said that the CDI is BAD/Going Bad. It starts and runs.
Are there any adverse affects from running this if the cdi is going bad?
Can I run this until the CDI goes out?
Thanks in advance.

Not sure how to tell if it's "going bad." Usually there will be no spark. The shop manual details resistance tests to help you pinpoint the problem.
You can probably find a complete used electrical box for under $250. Try James at JetSkiPlanet.com, or post in the Yamaha classifieds on this site.

it may start and run but once put under load it might only do 4mph. That was my experience with a bad cdi. If it gets in the water and runs fine, dont worry about anything, Just ride it.
