Sooo.... I may be a little mechanically oriented but electrically I am a total noob. The CDI I have for the Bandit 250 is some aftermarket LXO Lixiandra thing, it says its a bandit 250 GJ74A which is correct for the engine I have....(manufactured by shijiazhuang lixianda tech co ltd). I opened it up, a little bit of surface rust on a few terminals under the board but I cleaned that, and for the most part it looks pretty new. Anyhoo... referencing the following: It says the red probe are the columns and the black probe is the rows, but when I do it that way I get no readings at all. The multimeter is set to 20k, the reference is "kilo ohms" surely I can't be THAT tired? However, if I make the columns the black and the rows the red, I start to get readings. That doesn't make sense to me because the thing shouldn't be a diode, it shouldn't matter which way the probes are the resistance should be the same in both directions? The other issue is, the readings are nothing like what the reference says they should be (generally). For example, the first two columns with readings are: one two five 12.93 12.87 six 2.14 2.13 seven 2.14 2.13 'spose the row five ones are not too far off what they're supposed to be (11.5/11.5). Am I totally off track..??
