1988 Honda Fourtrax 300 cdi booster circuit

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I have 88 4trax FW , it has a booster circuit

In the cdi control fed from a leg in the alternator. 

MY Honda service manual says you will get no spark without this circuit on this model. 

Can someone explain a little about this please ?    Thanks

not sure- never worked much on a honda other than a recon and Rubicon

I'm kinda confused about what your question is?

      I'm having a problem getting a CDI unit that works. The parts list calls for a  4XE-85540-00-00 CDI unit. The one currently on the ATV works but there seems to be a problem with the spark advance curve. It will idle fine an rev. to about 1.5K then  starts bogging down sputtering, popping and basically running poorly. If you can get it above 2200 RPM it runs better. I have ordered and returned about 5 replacement modules that will not work at all. The unit currently on the bike has no part numbers or identification other than a Mitisibuchi logo. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced similar problems with replacement CDI's and if so what is the fix? So far I have not found a replacement CDI that will supply an pulse to the Ignition coil.

      I have worked about 4 weeks on my Griz600 and have burnt 2 CDIs up ! I added a wire harness and stator and It starts but runs erratically like spark timing is off ! So I would like to try another CDI but I don’t want to Pay an arm n leg ! Anybody have one ? Thanks

      I have been trying to get my Griz600 running right for 3 weeks ! Grandsons used it and it quit running , no spark ! New stator etc and started but ran terrible ! Found a burnt capacitor on cdi . Installed used cdi and burnt it also but ran same as other cdi . Came to conclusion wire harness had short so stripped it and found some bad spots fixed and another cdi ran terrible again ! Bought another harness and same rough running ! Checked spark timing with light (put tdc mark on case and on pull start hub) and when it starts timing right on but will jump 25+° retard ! When timing is on tdc marks it has no power ! The stator is new but I am wondering if the pickup coil is triggering incorrectly ? Also had top end apart when I first started having trouble and although rings were good I installed new rings . Also new timing chain and check the valves , they were good also . It kind of seems to boil down to the last stator I installed new ? I have done trouble shooting on quite a few cars , trucks , dirt bikes and ATVs but this is frustrating me ! Just wondering if anyone has any ideas ? Carb was new last yr and I checked it ! I

      IMG_4272.MOV Originally had my griz600 stop running and then wouldn’t start ! After testing all coils , valve lash , compression (115psi) and all tested ok I bought a used cdi . After cdi install it still wouldn’t start (no spark) ! So even though the stator , pulse/trigger and charge coils check within good range I decided to switch the stator etc ! It started but It is very unresponsive on throttle and acts like it is running in 2 Different spark timing ! With slight throttle it will take off good but instantly go into a very different running mode with no power like timing very retarded but it will switch back to running good for short period then bad again !  Since I replaced the stator and it started I then decided to install the cdi I replaced and it did the same thing ! Also I noticed the Used cdi I Took off had a capacitor that had swelled and extruded from the back of the cdi . I had always heard and I believed that when these CDIs go bad they machine will quit and will not run . Is that true ? I also checked the cam/valve timing and its ok ! Checked with timing light and it does fluctuate on idle ! I am thinking I have 2 bad CDIs . I also switched the trigger Coil wires and would not start then . Man , this thing ran good before and I am confused ! Video below may help !

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      So this’ll be long I’ll give all the background first to see my issue skip to the ***
      Hey I picked up a pit bike and a foreman for 800 the pit bike was running but the foreman was locked up.  Sold the pit bike but when I took the top end off the piston I only found half a piston left.  So knowing the rest of the piston was down in the crankcase I knew it had to be pulled and gone thru completely.
      to pull the motor I went ahead and pulled the rear end off and unbolted the front diff to pull the drive shafts and pull the motor.  Now I have the motor torn down completely and have all the parts of the piston removed.  I know the rod and crankshaft is shot (heat discoloration and too much up and down play rod to crankshaft).  
       
      ***so I’m wondering while I have the motor apart what should I check for?  I know this motor died from heat as the oil in the head smelled like popcorn.  So what should I check to make sure I fix the issue (overheating I assume) and not just the symptoms (blown up motor lol).
      so put simply I don’t want to just rebuild the motor to have it overheat and repeat the process after 5mins of running
      Here’s some pics

      I have a 1993 Bayou 400 4x4 and I have no spark. I tried 2 new plugs and nothing still.
      I have checked the CDI black wires to body of the box for continuity and none.
      It turns over but no spark, not sure where to go from there.
      Any advise on what and how to check other components would be awesome.
      Thanks: Garry
