65u Riva CDI revB
I have a RIVA CDI for 99 GP1200 or in this case a triple piped WB2-1200. Cylinder #3 has no spark and I have isolated it to the box and not the coil. Is there a fix or am I shopping for another CDI? Box is revision B. Thanks for the help...

I don't know of anyone that actually repairs CDIs. Check with Randy of Watcon to see if he knows anyone.
If you can get through all of that potting it is probably an easy fix for someone who specializes in automobile ECMs and PCMs.

If you find another one let me know as I would like to buy your broken CDI to tinker with.

I have to ask but did you get ohm readings from the three pulser coils?

Osidebill, I changed the coils around and the coils along with plugs and wires are all working. Its just that cyl #3 has no spark, if I simply plug wire #2 or #1 into the #3 coil it works. Doing a quick web search it seems that there are alot of these CDI's that don't work out there. Hopefully someone has gotten one fixed...
If I am SOL, anyone have some advise on getting that potting cover off? I probably know a guy that could fix it, but getting into it is another story.

I have heard the same things about the riva CDI I had my stock one modded by Pro-Tec but I believe this is non invasive he sends them out to someone to get them done you may want to give him a call.

I may have mis-understood your post I was speaking originaly of the pulser coils (pick-ups) they are located in the front cover there is a plug that goes in to your cdi 4 wire w/rd, w/gr, w/blkand blk you can check resistance on these between the black and then each of the three wires these tell your cdi when to fire resistance should read between 248-372
have you checked these?

Stock CDI and everything works. I didn't try the resistance test.
