    1999 1200xl Power Valves /cdi ??

    Anyone on with electric power valve knowledge? Tried a test per some instructions another member sent to me. Results wre somewhat inconclusive..

    Motor did move, but just slightly. When bumping the start button p v electric motor will (home) all the way counter clock wise. But no self -check at start up like it always did.

    What makes this motor advance the port timing? CDI box??? Some type of sensor else where on the motor???

    I only remember the cleaning (where it opens then closes) when you turn it off...

    I guess thats what it was doing when it cycles back and forth, cleaning..? It`s not doing that at start up OR shut down... I am not convinced that it is a servo motor... Could it be a CDI or some kind of sensor??? HELP!

    Check the wiring for corrosion on the motor and the plug remove the rubber boot to see the wires on motor. This has been an issue in the past.
