cccccccccccc I have been having some very annoying issues with my 650L and I think its my CDI. Your NX just dying for no reason? Is there no consistant time of death? Mine just dies at random intervals. Sometimes it will run for a couple hours and sometimes it wont start at all. When mine acts up, I just pull it out and whack it againt the frame a few times. That usually works for a while. Try it. Mine did that, I traced it tio the CDI, if you tapped on it or wiggled the wire connector it would act up, internal CDI connection problem, I replaced it and foam mounted it no more issues (it was a 93XR650L), captb Hehe, that sounds kinda funny.
