Thread: Cdi Rust clump

  1. #1

    Cdi Rust clump

    I recently purchased a 1994 Polaris 750. Everything checked out except spark was barely perceptible. Three new spark plugs later problem remained. Cracked open the CDI and it was rust city. Is it worth fixing OR can it even be fixed? This is the only thing thats holding me back from starting the ski. Thanks.

    Welcome to the Hulk NOOB! lol too funny..

    Wow, your cdi is a mess. you could go thru the parts and clean what ya can and look for burned or loose wires and get rid of the gunk in there and see what ya have there then. not everything in there is toast.. its possible if submerged under salt water/water for a long time its all hit..

    or just buy a used one off a member here. theres lots of sl parts availble for your ski. look under the classifieds and check it out.. im parting out my 94sl right now.. but no cdi.. it burned the stator wires.. Although....

    I could just mail it to you and you cannablize it for parts..

    is that rust on the terminal board? if it is, i'd just get a running cdi from someone.

    lol "your cdi is a mess" is an understatement. There is a couple of wires that have corroded off the board. I tried removing the fuse for the MFD and the clamps came off with it. Theres just rusty gunk all over the place. I think that in order to save myself alot of aggravation and frustration I'll just buy a cdi. Ty for your offer.

    What you need to replace is the electrical box.

    The CDI module is just one item that is inside that electrical box.

    I have the entire box if you need it.
    CDI/Coils/Case/Board.

    Looks like you can salvage most of it, but the board with the wires going to it looks trashed.
