    CDI upgrade

    I was wondering would a CDI for a 96-97 SLT SL 780 work in a 1995 650 electrical box? If so what would the performance gains be if any?

    There is one on e-bay ending soon.

    The timing is different, a bit more advanced. Unfortunately, a 650 uses an analog signal, while the 750, 780, and 785 uses a digital signal. You'd need a different stator to make it work reliably. If you're going to do a CDI swap, you should be on the look out for a PRO 785 CDI. It has alot more timing advance and raises the RPM limiter to almost 8000.

    CDI Upgrade

    Thanks Xlint. How you liking the snow we have been having here lately!

    I passed on the auction anyway as he had a reserve price on it and I wasn't sure. Thanks for the info so I know what to keep my eyes and ears open for now.

    Happy New Year.

    Please ask any Q you may have before you make a purchase. I bought alot of unecessary stuff because I didn't know too much about these. Learn from my mistakes, it's much cheaper. LOL

    The snow kinda sucks. I have to haul trailers around occaisionally with my 2WD truck. Got stuck a few times the other day. On a lighter note, I can't wait to sled ride....
