    Polaris sl700 cdi problem

    I have a sl700 that will not shut off without pulling the plugs I checked all my groung and the only way I can get it to work is if I shake the black and yellow wire going into the cdi

    That wire is the one that grounds the CDI to kill the engine. I suspect your problem is with that wire. Check it all the way back to the kill switch. I bet its broken or damaged somewhere.

    Is that wire internally broken where it enters the CDI module?

    Examine the CDI wire throughly with a close eye. Easier to do when the CDI is out of the electrical box, in your hand.

    Look for signs of the wire being pinched, stretched or badly kinked.

    It might be possible to test it using an ohm-meter between the kill wire (Black/Yellow) and Black (ground), but I have never tested a good CDI to know what the expected ohm range would be.
