    Could get a new one from SBT. 300 is not a bad price for a new one. Used ones go for almost that much.

    The SBT CDI is a high start timed CDI. You would probably have to advance the magnet holder on the flywheel all the way to the right when facing the flywheel to get the timing close.

    The CDI could also be reprogrammed to the proper timing curve for your application.

    Thanks Mr. Matrix. If I bought that CDI How do I have it reprogrammed to the proper timing? Would I have to take my ski somewhere to do that or could someone program it out of the ski?

    Also, what would be the correct part number to this CDI? I've seen multiple numbers.

    Someone is selling a whole electrical box on ebay but its from a freedom virage. Does anyone know if it will work with a virage?

    The Freedom has some electrical box differences from Virage. Not sure how many oddball differences there would be in adapting it to Virage.

    The Freedom CDI should work in the Virage, but check whether either one uses the High Start timing flywheel.

    How would I check that on my ski k447? I believe parts have been changed on it already.

    Check the flywheel part numbers for both the Virage and the Freedon, on the Polaris Industries parts cross reference web site. Link from my signature.

    If the flywheels have the same part number then the CDI would also have the same timing configuration, normal timing or High Start timing.

    The difference is the High Start flywheels are set for ten degrees more base timing than the regular flywheels. The stock CDI part number is then matched to the flywheel timing to create the actual engine ignition timing.

    I can program a CDI but first you really need to know which flywheel you have. Most likely you have the standard flywheel.

    Any gen 3 CDI will work on your Virage.
