Hey Guys,

I'm trying to determine the year of my CDI/CPU for my 'Blade.

As we know, a lot of these bikes are not matching parts and mine is no exception.

Here's the info on the black box:
MALA US
973G
6124

Does anyone know how to look up those numbers to determine what year the CDI is? Also, I need to determine what year motor to match it up to.

Thanks!

What year is the bike?
It hasn't got a Honda part number on it?
It doesn't really need to match a particular engine. You would probably want the correct wiring harness though.
Can you post photos of the box and the pin layout?

Are you sure it's a Blade?
MAL appears to be a "centre" code for the F3.

Thank you for the fast response!

This is the problem:

- The frame is a 93 (I have a complete rolling chassis).
- I have a 96 motor (it's not installed, yet)
- I have no clue what year the wiring harness is (highly possible that it's a '93)
- The CDI in the pic is a 16 pin

It would help a lot to know if this CDI will work with a '93 wiring harness or a '96...

I've attached pics for you.

LOL! The vendor on eBay sold it to me as a "CBR900 CDI".

That is exactly why I am checking; to FULLY understand what it is.

Guess I will call my dealer to verify.

Thanks Again :)
