How are you ?
Those 3 wires, are your charging circuit wires and not for ignition. What you need to do first is check all fuses, check battery voltage, make sure you have a known good or new sparkplug, ground it against the cylinder head crank the engine over and check for spark visually. If sand till no spark, remove the sparkplug cap from the igntion coil wire by turning it counterclockwise, trim back 1/4 inch of wire and reinstall the sparkplug cap on the ignition coil wire clockwise. If still no spark, you will need to check the igntion coil primary and secondary resistance, check the pulse coil coil ( AKA. trigger coil, pulse generator ) which is located in the same casing as the stator where you checked continuiy on all 3 wires. If still no spark, you will need to test the igntion switch, run/stop switch and wiring. If you still have no spark, replace the CDI unit.

You may be wondering how to reach me in the future, if you may have another question. You can achieve this by requesting me to answer your question or in your question, put FOR RACETECH.
FYI: The regulator is part of the charging system as well. it regulates the votage to the battery, so that your battery isnt overcharged. Your stator acts as your alternator, this is what produces voltage and then routed to the voltaged regulator where it is regulated and then routed to charge your battery.
Hello racetech...i need to know how to check ignition coil primary and secondary resistance..(what wires..what ohms of resistance)checking pulse coil ( location,how to check ) do i not check cdi box before replacing it...how do i do this... Don
You cant test the CDI.
You have to test everything around it.
ok whata about circuits before i buy a cdi box
Do you not have a service manual for this unit ? Are you aware of what a service manual is and whats inside of it ?
yes i know what one is but i dont have one
OK, got you. Let me see if I can find one
the local honda dealer can have one next week...im trying to find and repair problem today
I was about o tell you about the dealer. I do use another source for my manuals, that are cheaper than the dealer.
I download most of my manuals, but you have to decide if a download would be betetr and print the pages you need or having the paper back copy is better for you
I found one for 4.25$ in US money for you.
can i contact u via phone?
Were working on that feature soon, from what I hear. But I cant contact you at the moment. Exchanging contact information with you, they will fire me. I like my job.
Here is the link to the manual
is it possible that the stator is fried?

No way to tell without testing. Honda is known for CDI and ignition coils. Not many of them fail though.
ok so how do i test it?
With a digital hand held mutli-meter.
yes i know...but what wires and what resistance is acceptable
Some of then require a peak voltage adapter.
i have that as well
All that is in the service manual. I work on so many makes and models, I cant recall the readings for that unit.
k send me the link for the manual
