86 moto 4 cdi

It’s hard to say but I would guess the last two years before and after would fit that. Just look up the part and compare the plugs. They should be noticeable as far as fit up.  But before you replace everything do some testing and check the stator and pick up coils first. If your handy with a tester let us know and we will walk you through it.

Just FYI...I have the same machine and my spark issue was caused by the ignition coil mounted under the gas tank where the spark plug wire comes out of. I replaced it with a new one from Partszilla for under $20 and it solved my problem. I don't know about the CDI.

Mine lost spark until I charged the battery. I figured out that the voltage regulator/rectifier was bad by using a multimeter. I tested voltage from the stator at the connector the regulator plugs into, white wire to blue wire. You should see at least 12 volts AC. It should go up higher than that when you rev the engine (mine goes up to 30 VAC). If that's there, you have a good stator. Then test the regulator/rectifier, which would probably be best tested by connecting your multimeter to the battery with the engine not running, and note the voltage. Start the engine and rev it up. The voltage should go up. If it doesn't, you need a new regulator. The inline fuse is part of this circuit, too, but nothing works if it's blown.

For you electronics nerds like me, I test the regulator output at the battery because the raw feed from it while disconnected from the battery can confuse some multimeters because it's pulsed DC, not constant DC.

There are only a couple of years that fit the 86. They used the same CDI for the last 3 wheelers and first gen 4 wheelers. They are very rare indeed.

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      1997 Yamaha 350 Warrior, should there be oil in the stator area? Have a no spark situation.

      Hey guys I'm new here. I have a 88 warrior that has intermittent spark. When I got the bike the guy said it needed a stator.  So I tested the stator and the Source coil has .310,  Trigger coil has .363 an .367,  Alternator side has .05 to .06 on the three. Which all seem in range. I did find that the ignition coil was bad and replaced it. After I  put the new coil on i got spark but only now and then. The bike won't spark while I'm holding the start button,  but as soon as I let off it will spark sometimes. I ended up unplugging the voltage regulator and it will spark every time I let off the start button, but still will not spark while I'm  holding it. What could this be?
