    Yeah I don’t think I would invest much into that ignition!

    Thanks for your info guys. I'll probably go with the motor city or go back to a cr ignition. If I can't figure out this hpi, then I'm getting rid of it. Dang R might just go in the corner for a few years and I'll pick up a 450 lol.

    Rebuild the standard OEM IGN.

    Still decent Honda components New or used (as well as Ricky Stator Stator'ss) are available, with New Honda type CDI's coming in December at BDT. Definitely keep away from aftermarket CDI's; all are Junk.

    Or save up and spend the $$$'s and go CR250R IGN, it is the "best" Performance option as all others just don't work as they should. Plus; you can't beat Honda quality, reliability and performance.

    I know when I added the CR ignition to my big bore, it was the single best upgrade I've ever done. Part of it may have been that I was previously using a 30 year old ignition that was getting tired, but still--wow! It starts much easier, revs a lot quicker, and just has more torque and power. I've seen the Motor City ignition and the spark it throws looks impressive. I just don't like the idea of having to use a battery.

    85 ATC250R here. Did someone say kickback from an aftermarket chinesium ebay CDI? It took about three months to heal this one up.
    Obviously I sent the ignition back and they balked at my request. I sent them the pic and was refunded immediately! I put the 86 style CDI on and it improved starting a bit but occasionally still does a little kickback.

    **Any recommendations for an ignition for this machine are appreciated.
