You can make the splice for the coil wire up in the BB, and don't need to run the wires all the way back to the actual coil. On the main ECU plug on top, you'll see the coil wire. Cut and splice accordingly right there. Use this pic man:

So I dont have to buy wire and run it all the back to the coil. I can splice into the stock wire that runs back to the coil in the battery box like this?...

the cdi harness should come with two wires long enough to run from the battery box back to the coil.

Nope, we picked it up used. The guy we got it from said

the cdi was installed by bss ( battlescooter) and jason installed everything close to the ecu and used the stock cdi wires.


so what would be the difference between running the "cdi" wires to the coil and splicing into them before the coil?

one requires splicing the other doesn't.

I am fine with splicing into it, just some cutting and soldering.

something else that is confusing about this thread is the green ground wire from the cdi...

best to go to the battery ground or to to the relay ground?

this is what we are working with....typical posh 10.5k

Both the green and the red wire go to the power relay, right above the battery.

This is a very basic schematic as I hooked mine up. The part IMHO where the mistake is made is.....at the hook up at the stock relay. The color could/is vary`ing a little. If you use the position of the wire, and use a volt meter to confirm that that pin have the excact same voltage as the battery when key on....then I believe you will be ok.
Here is the relay tap.... Please note the diode....It is directional sensitive...and the ring is like the tip of an arrow....

Erling


Is the diode necessary? I dont think there is any way for the cdi to send a burp back through the relay because thats just not how a relay works...anyone have any input? sorry for bringing up an old post

^^^^I have no idea why all that other stuff is needed. You guys are thinking about this way to much. Follow the pic I posted that's it.

RuckyOne- Yes, It's just an in/out signal. Why run the wires all the way back when it can be done right in the box? Again, my pic is spot on with where to hook it up.

So correct me if i am wrong the posh cdi is only for 06 and up models??????
I hooked one up on my 03 accordingly to the directions and the pictures on pro cycle.
It didnt run all too good, and it killed my electric start.
I though i had to let the variator wear in but no, the ruck left me stranded ahah.
Could i of fried my CDI also.
Please help

just installed 2, one on a 09 and the other 08. Followed the wiring, but soldered everything in the BB so no extra wires going back to the coil. My wife and I couldnt be more pleased with the results!!!

Just finished installing my new Posh CDI in my '09 Ruck... and it isn't working so hot. On the one hand my electric start still works, on the other hand I've lost ~5kph in top speed, lost significant amounts of acceleration (from accelerating ahead of cars and never getting passed to being slowest of the herd every time), and it doesn't sound particularly healthy at WOT. Now I obviously didn't wire something in there right, or the connections aren't sound (no soldering... it was 8 by the time I got to the CDI and I was just trying to get it done so I could stop fumbling in the dark).

Where should I be looking at first for an improper connection, I put the ground cord in one of the ECU mounting screws so I'm not sure if that would be it, going to go in tomorrow regardless to clean everything up and make sure I've got it working properly.

Full Disclosure: I broke the "1 mod at a time" rule and put in a lowered seat frame and R6 rear light at the same time, both of those work perfectly so I can't imagine they're related

i dont se how those mods would have anything to do with the cdi. the best advice is to follow the diagram, and finalize all the connections. there is no point to do it if not done correctly, take your time and double check you have the correct wires and you will be fine. and make sure you have the correct plugs connected to the harness of the cdi as well. there is a 2 wire plug (for power and ground) and a 1 wire plug (for revs) they can pluged in the wrong connector on the cdi side of the harness.

the one mod at a time thing is for performance mods, cosmetic mods don't apply.

I was being a smartass, I know it shouldn't matter. I went in today to finish grinding off the rear tail light assembly, while there I opened up the bbox and re-wired all the connections to the CDI. Re-wired as in soldered every connection and used new 16 gauge wire for each to bridge between the CDI and the Relay (so that there was some slack in the lines to remove that as a problem). Just ran to get some gas and it ran just as shitty as before.

On the plus side I know I didn't fuck up any of the wiring I was worried about fucking up (not wanting to lose my electric start meant I had the fear of god in me hooking that thing up). Bad news is it still runs like piss, which means it's got to be the coil hookup causing problems. I'm pretty sure I wired it up correctly (and got the connections in as far as they could) though.

Unplug Coil wire->Connect CDI->Plug Coil wire into CDI. I made damned sure it was the right one i disconnected (though if I got the wrong one I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be starting at all), so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm going to open her up again tomorrow when I can see again and redo the coil wiring, hopefully that solves the problem...
