Yep, its an easy switch, only need a switch with three connections who can switch on/on.

Hi there, in my set-up in the past i had a switch in my handlebar behind the grip.

In my latest set-up i mount the switch behind the honda logo on top of the batterybox.

Take off the Honda logo
Image
Image

Cut out the space where the logo use to be.
Image

Mount the logo on a small piece of aluminum.
Image

Glue the logo on top of a 2 way on/on guitar-effect switch
Image

This is for the idea, here is the small piece of aluminum not mounted.
Image

Bend a aluminum strip like this.
Image

And at last glue the alu-strip with the switch on the inside of the battery-box.

I'd really like to see these images... (I know this is an old thread..)

I know I'm dragging up an old thread, but the honda zoomer club links don't work any more? Does anyone have a copy of the guide or a different link to installing the polini cdi with a switch?

Hi,

Just for other people's benefit, I found the polini original install instructions here:

http://www.polini.com/dep/Zoomer_PI%20291.pdf

But this doesn't show you how to install in the battery box or with a switch.

The HondaZoomerClub.nl link previously listed doesn't work any more but they sorted me out via facebook, so photos here:

These don't seem to want to embed, so here's a link instead:

https://flickr.com/photos/61654338@N02/sets/72157674664124781

(presumably no-one minds me posting these here as switch hiding positions have already been revealed - if anyone disagrees, let me know and I'll take them down.)

Depends on your country, I don't have an issue with it and I don't think there's any law against it in the UK unless you have a restricted licence. I could be wrong.

I'm in the U.K. But not installing with a switch to evade the police!?! Doing it for a few reasons.

1. Because of the inherent problems people are reporting with the polini CDI - means it can be turned off temporarily if needed.

2. Others have reported that you get loss of power instead of an increase if you don't have the exhaust/intake. I haven't got this yet, so means I can install the CDI ready to go, and just switch it on when exhaust is done.

3. At the moment, multiple people use my Zoomer, with and without restricted liscences.

4. These pictures show how to install within the battery box, not under the seat.

I was more worried about posting them as I would be revealing people's hiding locations, but these have been revealed already! My switch is going to be visible...

Hmmm....

If I'm honest, even unrestricted, you'd only get just above 40 on it anyway. I don't think it's even worth switching it, I'd just wire it in and be done with it, but that's upto you. As far as turning it on and off, as far as I remember, you have to leave it running for it to learn to work in tandem with the normal CDI.

I'm of the personal opinion that restricted 50cc bikes are pretty hazardous. You have less acceleration, less top speed, and even unrestricted, those aren't that high on a Zoomer, at least not high enough to get you in trouble, unless the person riding it is an absolute tool.

I ran the Polini CDI with a stock exhaust, no problems.

Fitted the CDI tonight.

The pictures don't show what to do with the white connections.

The service manual floating around is for the ruckus carb not the EFI but I managed to find a Zoomer EFI wiring diagram within this shop manual:

http://www.pdfmotomanual.com/index.php? ... 44154d9343

I think the white ones need to be connected to a different yellow and blue cable (on the adjacent plug to the yellow and blue that the yellow is connected to).

I think I got it all right and working, but it now struggles to start when cold. I'm hoping that as Ramashek says, the CDI will learn to work in tandem and this will go away?
