    Sl 750 please help

    Well I bought two 94 SL 750's from my friend on the trailer for 1200. I played on the ski's all last summer loved them. when he pulled them out this year one had no fire, one ran great. I took them home went to the lake played with the good one ran great, sluggish on bottom end. today i decided to track down the problem on the other one after reading through the FSM I pulled the CDI box out of the good one put it in the one that wouldnt start and it fired right up so I took that one to the lake ran it for awhile my friend jumped off it, got thrown from it then it wouldnt start just like it did before. so we took them home still no start... now they both sat on the trailer and turned over. I then took the CDI box from the bad ski and put in in the good ski, turned over no spark. swapped it back now neither ski will even turn over. Now I like an idiot did not disconnect the battery ground. could I have messed up both boxes. after sitting in the sun for 2 hours I was pissed and decided to give up and talk to you guys. any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


    THANKS

    Welcome to the Hulk.

    It does sound like you damaged the good CDI. Whatever may have damaged the original CDI, may have destroyed the "good" one as well.

    There's a couple things that can damage a CDI. Removing the spark plug boots while running or during cranking can damage it.

    Accidental grounding of the elec box can do it also.

    I must say though, if that CDI worked on the good ski, and now it doesn't, you should be looking for another replacement.

    Check out the classifieds, see what John Zigler has to offer, and of course Ebay.
