NOTICE: MODELS WANTED FOR VINTAGE CDI DEVELOPMENT
We are always open to new product development, and often reach out to the public to borrow or purchase specific vintage snowmobile or motorcycle models for R&D / CDI development.
We are located in SE-Michigan, about 40 miles North of Detroit (South of Port Huron). So if you have a particular Vintage snowmobile or motorcycle model that no longer has a CDI available, please contact us via e-mail link below:
SNOWMOBILES WANTED FOR CDI DEVELOPMENT:
ARCTIC-CAT: 4-plug Kawasaki F/A-T7 engine (1975-El-Tigr’es’ etc)
Ski-Doo: TUNDRA II – 1993~1998
We had no opportunities to add any snowmobile CDI models to the FIREPLUG line this off-season. All the arrangements we had for sled access fell through. This has become a tedious task when attempting to do development for snowmobiles the past few years. Listed above are the models we are still getting CDI request for. Any information leading to us obtaining these models (borrow, rent or purchase) is appreciated…thanks.
We just completed a summer FIREPLUG CDI development for a couple of Enduro / MX motorcycle models:
Kawasaki 1971~1975 F5, F7 & F9: (F7-175cc / F5-F9-350cc Bighorn). FIREPLUG CDI replaces OEM Kokusan / Kawasaki 21119-007 / CU1124 superseded by 21119-013.
Yamaha DT360A, DT400C, MX400B, IT400C & YZ400C from 1974~1976. FIREPLUG CDI REPLACES MITSUBISHI F8T00172 / OEM#: 445-85540-22: This CDI is close to production, but need a little more time to validate before marketing it. Hope to have it available in November 2017. Please watch the website for updates.
We are expanding our FIREPLUG CDI line up to include some vintage MX motorcycles. We only started offering these at the end of 2016, and they have started to become popular already. We are finding the vintage MX bikes have a lot in common with the snowmobiles from the same era. So it’s quite possible we will be adding more Vintage motorcycle CDI to the FIREPLUG line-up in the future. Thanks to this expansion, we are now selling FIREPLUG CDI’s into warm-weather states where we have never sold a FIREPLUG CDI before. States like Texas, California & Arizona now have FIREPLUG CDI’s on their MX bikes. Here’s the latest FIREPLUG CDI models for motorcycles:
YAMAHA MX: YAMAHA 1973~75 MX 250/360, 1974~76 YZ125, 1974~75 YZ250 Motorcycles. OEM#: TIA01-02-3XX. Replaces Yamaha OEM CDI ignition module 364-85540-13-00, as well as previous -11-00 & -12-00 versions.
We also have a 1978 YZ250 available for CDI development. This should add a couple of additional models. Watch for it this summer.
SUZUKI ENDURO: PE175/250 (1977~1979). If you are interested in the PE175/250 CDI, please contact us.
SUZUKI OEM#: 32900-41420
YAMAHA: Our Yamaha Enticer / BRAVO FIREPLUG CDI replacement has also become popular. Still lot’s of nice sleds around with no spark. As typical with Yamaha’s, the stator and components under the flywheel are pretty rugged. It’s the CDI’s that fail. An we are here to help!
JOHN-DEERE / KAWASAKI: We are arranging for a John-Deere 1980 Liquifier for this summers R&D for a replacement CDI. Lot’s of interest in this CDI, so we are going to make it happen. This same CDI was used on the JD’s & Kawasaki Invaders from 1978~1982, so hoping to cover some popular models with the FIREPLUG CDI for next season. We will post more info as we make progress with the development.
We are hearing rumors that one of the other CDI rebuilders in the states may be getting out of vintage snowmobile CDI products to concentrate more on their Marine applications. I’m not that familiar with their vintage snowmobile CDI offerings, however we are looking into the possibility of picking up the models that did provide.
