CDI Ignition waveforms for Motorcycle

Postby BrianL » Wed Jan 24, 2018 2:24 am

I noticed in the guided tests that there are specific motorcycle tests and waveforms. Not sure why an ignition system that is identical to any automotive ignition was shown? Some waveforms from a CDI system would be much more useful since they aren't used anywhere except on motorcycles. Does anyone have some good primary and secondary waveforms from a motorcycle CDI?

Hello Brian, thank you for the post.

You are correct and I apologise in advance as we should have a Guided Test to incorporate CDI

This is on our list and we will get to it rest assured.

The Waveform Library has a number of examples of Motorcycle ignition systems (inc. CDI) which is also utilised on lawn mower and marine engines.

I have found the following secondary waveform below from a Suzuki DF25A that I hope will help?
