    Polaris Virage TX Electronic Box

    Hi all,
    I recently pruchased a Virage Tx and absolutley love it. Only problem is that it only lasted one season and now I am told the CDI is stuffed and can not be replaced and without it the ski is useless. Is this true? Can anyone help me out with a part or an aftermarket part?
    The ski is a 2002 Virage TX Carb.
    Part number I need is 4010377.

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Welcome

    Where are you located?

    Who did the diagnostics?

    Hey K447,
    I'm located in Queensland Australia and it was diagnosed by my local auto electrician.

    Not doubting your tech, but there are some checks that might confirm it is the CDI.

    The first that comes to mind is bypassing the LR-505 Start/Stop module. Takes only a couple of minutes to do. If the engine now has spark and starts, the LR module is suspect.

    Apparently an additional supply of CDI for these Polaris carburetor red engines is imminent.

    Your a legend mate.

    Thank you so much for this info, I will get him to check this and if it is the CDI, I will await the release info.

    Thanks again

    Also make sure you have the correct "cranking voltage" to the CDI.

    As far as the CDI- I have seen a CDI with 4010377 written on it with a paint marker, but can not find any info for it from Polaris.
    That could just be because of a program change (the timing curve can be reprogramed in these CDI )
    The parts manual shows the 2002 uses what they call a "high start ignition" with the 4010569 flywheel.
    It also claims it should use 4010567 CDI, as does the service manual I have here.

    I have a good used 4010567 CDI here, for sale if you do need one.

    Indeed, as Casey points out, these PVL ignition systems are quite sensitive to battery voltage while the engine is cranking.

    The battery voltage must stay above 10.6 volts while cranking, preferably well above. If not, there will be no spark.

    Thanks for the info. How much would you like for the part?

    Did what you said K447 and it started. So I guess I now need a new CDI. Will hopefully track one down.

    Cheers

    If the engine started after you bypassed the LR module then the LR module is the problem.
