Hello,

I had the 'CDI failure', read about how to open and solder to repair the CDI in this thread, and repaired my faulty unit. Thanks guys!

My question is this. I ordered two new CDI units for spares (A double in case of trouble!!!) from this seller on amazon...

https://www.amazon.com/Performance-Transalp-30410-MM9-008-30410-MM9-830-30410-MS8-610/dp/B06XFJCZRQ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1507062400&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=honda+transalp+cdi&psc=1

The replacement CDI does not work. From what I understand about the part #, this is the correct part #.
Is there something anyone is aware of that would make this CDI unit not work with my bike?

As for now,I asked the seller for a replacement CDI.

Should work, I ordered the same thing for spares. First thing I did was checked them out, they both worked, but...hope you get satisfaction. Originals are $100 plus.

30410-MS8-610 is the correct part number. 30410-MM9-008 and 30410-MM9-830 don't seem to exist in any of the Honda parts lists I have. Are there any markings on the new CDI units? There are other CDI modules that look identical to the Transalp but are for other makes and will not work.

Yes, the CDI is unmarked. The connectors fit properly / are correct.

I guess we will see what happens with the replacement unit the seller is shipping me.

That bike is a 89-90 (USA), Correct? The 87-88 (Canada) uses a different CDI module. 30410-MM9-008 and 30410-MM9-830 are for years 87 and 88. I do not know if they are interchangeable with the 89-90 TAs.

I just did a little research and it looks like the 30410-MS8-610 (89-90) uses the side stand switch and the 30410-MM9-008 and 30410-MM9-830 (87-88) do not.

Did the aftermarket CDI units you got have a Wire Loop hanging out of the case?

Thanks for your input everyone. My bike is a 1989 Transalp.

A replacement /CDI was sent and also did not work. The seller refunded my $$ no problem.

I ordered another CDI from another company, SVS Powersports through Amazon.
The CDI ws made by 'Arrowhead MFG." Part IHA6001.

This CDI works great. No problems so far.
