Dynatek CDI questions

Beachcruiser2010-08-12 12:29:24 +0000 #1
I've been thinking about purchasing a Dynatek CDI but had a few questions before spending some green on one. The quad is currently stock (other than tires), will I have to rejet after the dynatek? Is there a noticable difference in power/torque over stock? Is the cdi waterproof? I've been research this CDI and have read nothing but good reviews for it. I'm looking at adding some power without having to add an exhaust and rejetting it. Plus it seems like the brute falls on it's face when I stab the throttle from a standstill. I don't understand it because I see guys with stock brutes on YouTube wheeling from from a dead stop. Thanks

OH yeah....my brute is a 07 750 carbed model.

yes it does make a big difference over stock with the cdi. no you dont have to rejet as it changes timing, rev limit and gets rid of the low speed retard and reverse override. i am sure it dose more but that is all i really know. it dose not mess with your fuel. I am running it with my bike stock except for clutch springs. Yes it is water proof.

I love mine, I have a bunch of mods but by far this was the simplest to install with no repercussions. just plug it in and feel the power, oh and I love the reverse overide being gone! I hated that thing!!! I highly recommend regardless of the mods you have or are planning to have.

ya man, it's definately what i would recommend as a ( necessary upgrade ) for anyone!! The difference is instant and easily noticeable, you won't regret it. In most cases it does cause an engine knock at idle, but that is the valves as the CDI alters their timing. No biggie, never causes a problem.

Sounds like something I'll have to invest in the near future. Who has the best prices for this CDI? Do yall happen to know what the model number is? Should I get the non-programmable or programmable? Appreciate the help guys.

I just purchased one off of ebay brand new in box for 120 shipped, I got lucky. Should be here tomorrow so Ill try and post back and let you know how it feels. I had the same exact questions as you did, about how on youtube everybody doing wheelies and such and whenever I try it it doesnt happen for me either. But like you said everybody had nothing but good things to say about the dynatek CDI box.
