Little urgent help please

First of all sorry about my english...

My converter unit is gone, and i have the chance to buy one from a 2003 honda vtr 1000 firestorm. The seller tell me that the late models of the firestorm use the same converter of the rc51.

Can anyone confirm this?
Please

The part numbers are different and usually means not compatible but could just be the case or connector is different but electrically may have the same out put. If I remember correctly the RC51 CDI outputs 100V to the coils. The ignitions appear similar but I would defer to Wibbly as he seems to be on top of the electrical devices and has helped many here (including myself) diagnose those problems.

Yes, he is a member. If you look at some of the postings on electrical problems he takes a very clear troubleshooting path and is very familiar with the RC's electrical systems. He may be familiar on possible interchange from other models but I'm assuming that as he seemed pretty expert on what each component does. You might want to send him a pm.

these are only interchangeable from 2000-2006 Honda SP1 and SP2.

Honda Firestorm will not work.
