Gotcha so i guess 88-93 300 fourtrax is what i woud get?..
If your machine was a 300 yes that would be correct. You need 250x 87 to ?.
Find out when your model was made to and buy the cdi for your year and model.

Here's a Ricks on eBay, I'd call Ricks and quote the item number though just to make sure it's not a Chinese copy being sold under the name Ricks.

Yes, so would I. I nearly bought a hotshot off eBay for 98to00 for my trx300fw, turns out Ricks doesn't make a hotshot for 98-00!!
eBay scammers, absolute nightmare!

Might just need some routine maintenance caught up... I'd go over the wiring harness real good after everything else is caught up, making sure each plug fits with a "snap" and is sealed tight with silicone grease.

You may not need to spend money on a CDI... you haven't even diagnosed it yet.

Glad ya got it running easily. Keep us updated if ya can...
