Pulled the Reaper out couple of days ago and found myself with a ski that turns over but didn’t fire and noticed that the bilge wasn’t cycling. So I popped the hood and found the Cdi wasn’t alive. On referencing the wiring diagram and troubleshooting page, of which are very informative, I started pulling it apart to get to the Cdi plug. On accessing the plug I started locating the 3 main wires that activate the Cdi.
green and yellow wire- earth
Red wire - constant positive
yellow wire- this turned the Cdi on and also supplies power to starter solenoid.
So all the wires had a feed except that the yellow only was building up to just over 10v with the starter engaged and if I disconnected the starter solenoid I got the 12v and bam the Cdi was alive again. I connected the starter solenoid put it all back together and I am back in business, but without a real fix to the problem and am sure I will be inflicted with this fault again. I am thinking that it would help the situation if the Cdi was prompted before the starter engages. Does anyone have a workable solution? And yes I did check for any issues with the wires and connections.Though on reflection I measured voltage drop at battery when starter was engaged and it was just a bit over 10v which is lower than it should be. I am going to check cable and connection on starter tomorrow, it would be interesting to see what everyone else gets at battery when starter is engage.
