    97 stx 1100 bogged down.

    i posted a thread about using a cdi from a 98 stx 900 on an stx 1100, i put the cdi on this morning and took it out for an hour. took it easy the first 20 minutes, then began to open it up, the ski ran better than it ever has, no hesitation or missing. took it home, later in the day, i took it out, started right up, ran great for about 30 minutes, i was idleing then went to wot and the ski bogged then died, waited a minute, the ski started but sounded weak so i shut it off and got pulled back to the ramp. any idea's, thanks.

    If you're getting spark, I'd suspect crud in the carbs if it's been sitting for a while.

    thanks steve, so you think if the cdi out of the stx 900 started and worked great over an hour and did'nt have any problems it is something different.

    Yes. I think the difference between the correct ignitor and the one you have is a change in timing. You probably won't get the performance you should with the 900 CDI.
