he had it running for longer than 5 minutes. he doesnt remeber how he wired it cause its been sitting around for almost 5 years. really i just want 12v lights and going to cdi seemed to be the best idea. ive always trusted my points tho. especially the low mile ones that came on my maxi. for $40 i wasnt going to complain. what about the original coil/cdi that came with it? anyone have any luck?
