The wiring is alot different for the cdi bike, did you swap the whole harness? If not what is the part # for the CDI unit you have?
Yeah, the coil has different resistance for cdi. I don't believe you posted the cdi part number. With that we can check the wiring real easy to see if that's the issue.
I did some digging and I apologize for having the kx and ke confused. KE never used cdi, however you can use a generic 5 pin cdi and coil to swap over.
You'll need this CDI unit and this coil
Then you'll modify the wiring to this
I apologize for the misunderstanding. Some guys change over to cdi for better performance.
The LAter model KE100 was wired like this from what you describe that should be what your current set up is compatible with.
That's corrrect on what you have now should work. There's no oem cdi unit. I don't have much info otherwise, so I will open this back up to other experts.
Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.Initially, the main concern would be physical mounting and as a result thus equally critical, the timing. Proposed preliminary considerations (if have not been factored in):
Hence and based on the above:
If these are the wires from the new stator ( two that go to the rectifier (to drive the lights), one that goes to the coil/igniter, and one that is merely for the neutral indicator), then yes, it would not work with a CDI.
Still and for this new stator, the only applicable ignition check then would be for the presence of pulsating voltage on the wire "...that goes to the coil/igniter..." when attempting to start
The voltage from the magneto ignition winding is actually pulsating DC or more particularly, repeatedly collapsing DC V. And it would be a very brief spike of 100V+.
The magneto ignition coil would have a coil resistance of around 0.5Ω.
Ideally, the ignition coil would have a very low primary resistance ~1Ω while the secondary winding would be in the KΩ.
