    2000 slx 1200

    Took it out first time this spring and it would cut out trying to plane out. Found that front cylinder had intermittent spark with a timing light and center and back had good spark. Put new plugs and wires on tested it on the lake. Has good normal power now. Will get up and go but still has a misfire on front cylinder. Compression is 130-135 on all 3 cylinders. Front carb looks to be squirting fuel down when I push the throttle. Put a new aftermarket cdi in 2 yrs ago. I really dont understand the stator and hall effect tests. But does anyone maybe have an idea of what's going on with the front cylinder misfiring?

    You said " will get up and go"
    What makes you think it is still misfiring on mag cylinder ?

    When I got home I put the timing light on the plug wire and it had intermittent spark.

    Theres 1 other guy on here that I seen today with the same exact problem and I'm leaning more towards a cdi box failure. Would you agree?

    If it is consistent, test voltage going into the ignition coil.

    I tried looking up how to do that but it's hard to understand there explanation on how to do it. Could you give me a little explanation on how to test voltage going to the coil please?

    Another question. The after market cdi box that I bought 2 yrs ago has a red tab on the left side of it. I was reading the a cdi box with red tab or something like that failed alot. Is this true?

    Hey Casey. Voltage is good going into the coil. I swapped the red and blue stator to cdi wires and y/brown and blacl/blue from cdi to ignition coil. The intermittent spark went to the center cylinder and also the front cylinder still had intermittent spark too. I hooked up the timing light to see the spark. Do you think the problem is stator or cdi?

    so now you have 2 intermittent cylinders ?
    is that a 2 stroke timing light ? I think you need to use an inline spark tester.
    The voltage reading might make a difference,since your looking for advice,maybe share that number.

    Update. Did stator test and had 102omhs on red and blue and green wires. The stator should be good. Had 7.8 volts going to the cdi while cranking. Did a omhs test on primary coil wires and had .3 omhs on all wires. The cdi and ignition coil should be good. Next I put a static timing on the front cylinder plug wire and started the machine and while engine running I hit the start button and got good regular spark for a couple seconds then goes back to intermittent. I read up on the lr module and emm. What is and where is the emm located in the black box and where is the lr module located in the black box. Any help would be great thanks
