Sorry - my error - I was looking at a 98
You have 6 wires on the CDI unit - there is another box that looks like a CDI, but it is the alarm unit - the alarm unit has 5 wires, brown with a red stripe, black, dark green, pink and blue with a red stripe - the CDI has black with a yellow stripe, dark green (ground), blue with a yellow stripe, yellow with a white stripe, blue with a white stripe and green with a red stripe.
The black wire is hot when the key switch is on - it goes from the key switch to various places, but we are only concerned with ignition at this time - the black wire goes to the handlebar engine stop switch - when that switch is on, the black/white wire is hot - the b/w wire plugs into blue/wht wire that goes to the CDI box - do you have 12 volts on the blue/white wire? And does the dark green wire have continuity to ground?
Beyond this you will need a peak voltage tester to test the output of the pulse generator, the output voltage to the coil and the voltage to the spark plug.
Without a peak voltage tester, check the continuity of the pulse generator and the ignition coil - go through the connections cleaning and lubricating them with dielectric grease - check the continuity of the spark plug cap and always test using a new spark plug - be sure to verify good grounds at all points requiring ground - don't concern yourself with the alarm unit - it's only function is to turn the oil temperature light - the ignition will work without it.
Let me know where this get's you
