yep..you are correct helmut...make sure you get the same year and make..very important for it to fire right.I would test the ignition coil first, but I would bet it's the CDI, since the CDI is a common part to go out on those. There is no test for the CDI, other than to replace it with a known good one.
not trying to step on any toes here..but..i've worked on alotttttt of early model 300's..and i've never seen one yet that would fire on a kick start..and not the elec start..if it is gonna fire..it will fire off a elec start or kick start..only thing your doing in the kick start phaze is bypassing the elec start feature..when you kick start it..your putting manual force into the flywheel instead of having a small motor turn it over for you..if the c.d.i is bad in any atv..it won't fire period..never has in my years of rebuilding them..but..hey..i've been known to be wrong a few times around here. lol.try using the kick starter and see if it fires then , dont use the electric start if it fires using the kick start , the ecm is bad for sure the 300 has a bypass circuit built into the ecm to get you home with the kick start also never test a 300 with a plug , use a tester or a screwdriver in the cap odds are youll see blazes of fire with the kickstart
i don't see how the c.d.i knows the difference when the flywheel is turning over..either by the elec start..or kick start....in my 14 years of working on honda 300's..i've never ran into this..buttttt..i will test this theroy soon as i got a few 300's to restore..i'll keep you updated.the honda 300 is the only model produced that had a bypass built into the ecm . if the starter button is used , the ecm knows it , and if the kick is used ,the ecm only knows its getting a flash signal , this idea or feature is not found on any other unit that i have the knowledge of in my 27 years with honda motors inc
Yeah, that's correct.
whaaaa...noo pic's to go with that response ?..lmfao.
Do you really need one? LOL.
lmfaoooo !!!!!..oh..thats not a 300 c.d.i !..lol..wait..it might be..your pic is too small !..lol
It's not an OEM CDI for the 300, but it fits the Fourtrax 300. It's a Hot Shot series performance CDI.
