    I bought this off Gumtree for $20+ p&h. But it's only a breaker, not crimp tooling.

    Who was that through? I have had similar deliveries through Jauce and Zenmarket. Fees are a little less in Zenmarket.
    I will have a shipment coming late next week I hope. Just waiting for 1 more Auction to end.

    I guess I am lucky in that anything from Japan (always use EMS) has been between 3 and 7 days depending on weekends and never any hold up in Customs... Actually they were faster to get me gear than another Sydney supplier... go figure.

    I was putting fresh batteries in my tactical flashlight (torch) getting ready to assault the depths of a Canada Post depot in search of my igniter. I had my web gear on with ballistic patches by Alpinestars ready for the worst when the mail carrier brought my CDI to the door. Word must have got out about my intentions.
    I made the purchase from Lixanda, off their site on Aliexpress. It arrived 14 days later, well packaged and in good condition. As well I received a small LED light to plug into my computer. Somewhat lame, but they score marks for trying.

    I was pleased with the attention afforded me as notifications were sent confirming the order, payment, and shipping progress while in transit. Now if it works...
    In the meantime I can hang up my jacket, and save the batteries in my flashlight (torch), cause now I can see my keyboard with my new light.

    Let me know how the lixianda unit goes, I'm thinking of one for my ZXR.

    I did ask them if they have an RPM limiter, but their english wasn't so good and the answer wasn't clear... I'm not keen on blowing up a motor because of a missed gear shift.

    I must admit I have some pent up anxieties regarding the CDI, because I have no Idea what happened to the original. I hope it was just old age. I'll be documenting my progress with the intention that good or bad, collectively we might learn more about CDIs, and as well about the quality of what and where we are buying them.

    It's actually a TCI (Transistor Controlled Ignition), not CDI (Capacitor Discharge Ignition)

    Hopefully the other side of their circuit board's have some epoxy to stop the component's failing due to vibration etc.
    I see that they don't even bother to seal the soldered joint's on this side

    [​IMG]

    If your's has failed it would most likely be one or more of the soldered joint's is dry/fractured and isn't making good contact (1st pic), a failed transistor/s (black square component's in 2nd pic), capacitor's (tower shaped cylinder's, centre bottom, 2nd pic) or diode's inside (D1,2,3,4 in 3rd pic),
    They're all cheap and easy enough to replace/fix as long as the circuit board hasn't been burnt beyond repair (see lower section of circuit board in last pic)

    Are the stickers just off eBay or are they via a group like Christian sportsbike club?
