i have hooked up my battery is good
i got no spark at both plugs

Check Ben at RC51parts.com

I just ran across this ad, one of the things he says he has is a CDI box.
Thought I'd pass it along, maybe you can work a deal with this guy.

i do buy stuff on line but craig list from CA brings an uneasy feeling.
ive always been told u meet the person and do the exchange like that. im in louisiana nowhere close to this guy.
i would trust the forum members any day over a craighlist guy. the location says Menifee.

^^ So you're the one that took the CDI from me! Had a deal with him along with other parts, but do understand as he's needing money since he can't work. I'll let this one slip this time!

With what you just described, I don't see how you could blame pepito.
