954 cdi box from ebay good idea ?

ok so after putting my bike in the shop i called a few other shops and told them the story about how the bike ran untill i jumped it. reverse the polarity and the only thing that would of fired was the cdi box. so i called the shop i have the bike in and asked them if they wanted me to get a cdi box and thay said thay dont think thats it. ( and that thay are waiting for the manule from honda to diagnose the problam.) but i found one on ebay for 49.99 but it now ... should i buy it or not what does it sound like to yall.

Might get lucky but I've learned to never buy a used electrical part unless there is some type of written guarantee.

My experience,
Ivan

Even Honda dealers have to buy the manuals so why would they buy manuals they don't need yet?
Not having the manual is not indicative of the quality of the shop.

Sure, but would they have needed a manual for it.
Most work doesn't need the manual and I assume in this case they're only after wiring diagrams and electrical specs for testing.
