Bad DRZ250 CDI, can I use DRZ400 CDI?

I've troubleshot it down to a suspected bad CDI, but there are none available for sale except from Suzuki for big money. The DRZ400 CDI looks exactly the same and they are all over Ebay for decent prices. Has anyone ever tried this?

On some Japanese bikes, the first set of nos. is the part no. and the rest indicates model and year. I would check with a Suzuki dealer first.
The 250 CDI has a higher price than the 400 by + $100.00

I also found out that if you are using a battery charger to try to start your DRZ250, it won't produce a spark if you have it set at 200amp start mode. Turns out that my CDI was just fine once I put the charger on 40amp quick charge mode. I'm glad I didn't buy a CDI.
