TRX300 No Spark, New CDI Help
Hello all, I have a 1992 TRX300 that's been hit or miss with starting for a while. It has a new battery and a good plug, but it's not getting spark, so I ordered a new CDI. Just installed it and when trying to start up, it fires and almost starts, but then the reverse light immediately comes on and it stops trying to fire. I have to shift into and out of reverse for it to go off, and it comes back on once I try to start it again. I plugged the old cdi back in and there isnt any reverse light issue. And still no spark.
Is it the new cdi? It's slightly thicker and the plugs on it are in the center instead of off to the left side.
Or could it be a diode in line with the reverse switch, or the switch itself?
Any advice is greatly appreciated, as my patience with this thing is wearing thin.
