Re: motobecane CDI ignition le partie - ground confusion

I noticed that the new version of the cdi wiring looks like both the black and black/white wires go together, is that so? Now I went from one confusion to another it looks like both wires go together. I don't want to take a chance and burn something

Yep, can confirm. Just installed this last month, runs great off of cheetahs diagram.

Re: motobecane CDI ignition le partie - ground confusion

Cheetahs diagram is spot on, only debatable part is the exciter coil wire for the coil - should is be floating or run to common... the jury is out on that subject... either method will produce a robust and consistent spark.

If you follow the diagram and still no joy for a snappy blue spark then swap the orange and black wires at the coil.

What happened to the diagram?

Francois Labat /

Does this mean the current coming out the CDI is AC ?

I don't see a rectifier used for the current going to the lights.

Re: motobecane CDI ignition le partie - ground confusion

yeah these are AC out of the box, you have to rectify for DC
