No It Won't And You Can Damage Your Electronics.

If it's a non RFVC XR500 motor (pre 83), then no for sure. Later, I'm not sure. As far as burning up the electronics, the CDI unit is the electronics.

There are ads for CDI boxes on ebay that say "XR200, XR350, XR500(83-84), XR600" all years, so I'd guess they are the same.

If it was me, I'd try it.
