Re: Honda CX500 Motorcycle CDI ignition unit

I think the Bud PN-1321-DG is the most likely as its only a fraction higher than the original.
The original is still in great shape and there is a plastic sheet that keeps the pcb from shorting on...

Re: Honda CX500 Motorcycle CDI ignition unit

Yes you are right Redwire, the CDI box is located under the seat and is not in a exposed area to the wet. its more likely to just get damp under there.

Re: Honda CX500 Motorcycle CDI ignition unit

OMG Sorry Redwire that must have been a typo as your right R20 is red, red, brown, gold=220R.

Re: Honda CX500 Motorcycle CDI ignition unit

Original can is 92x65 by 45mm deep.

I am having trouble locating R19 but if the one I think is it then its as follows.
R19 =180 ohms???
R20=610 ohms.
R21=910 ohms.
