My 93 650L cuts off while riding after it warms up. I know its not a fuel problem. I cannot seem to get a reading through the pulse generator so i believe that is the problem. How do you test the Cdi unit? Better yet is it located in the battery box?

My CDI went out on my 93 650L, I could let it idle and if I tapped on the CDI or wiggled the connector it would miss and cut off, tried twisting the spade connectors to fit tighter but a pin connector was loose in the CDI, mine acted up more when hot.

My 96 had the same problem. The CDI box is probably bad. I swapped it out with one from a bike being parted out. Result. Two years and not a single problem. $35.
