Curious - where did you get a CDI unit since they are no longer available from Honda? How do you know the old CDI was bad?

Check the CDI charge coil for continuity and peak voltage - resistance should be 50-200 ohms if it is a Nippon Denso ignition or 250-400 if it is a Mitsuba ignition (you can tell by checking the CDI unit (it will have an ND or Mitsuba marking) - peak voltage is usually about 45 volts (checked on the DC scale of a peak voltage meter).

If that's all good then the CDI unit is at fault - make sure the CDI box you got is an AC and not a DC unit. Who ever sold it to you will know.

I am most likely going to put the coil and cdi back on since they are the original ones
