I actually just ended up selling mine as well. The CDI seemed to cure issues I was having with dropping a cylinder at higher RPMs. It wasnt running quite right still.

Re: TCI/CDI Igniter Box Rebuild 1982 XV750 Virago Gen 1

Re: TCI/CDI Igniter Box Rebuild 1982 XV750 Virago Gen 1

I have received all parts from Mouser. They didnt have one of the capacitors in stock until June, so I had to order one through Radio Shack. I have it off the bike now, and am starting to get into it. Should have all replaced within a week. I will update if it fixes my hesitation problems and one cy...
