2008 Teryx CDI question

I purchased a new 2008 Teryx. Thinking about adding a Dynatek CDI. The main motivation would be better cold starting performance. Could someone please explain how this works better than the stock? Are they solid state? Do they degrade or wear out over a period of time?

Do I have to put the oil break in at the same time? I won't be pushing the bike very hard typically.

Thanks

you can run the cdi with no problems..it helps tremendous....although it never helped mine start any better.the key to having a quick starting kawasaki is in the carbs.and dont ask me what to do because i have had my carbs off and done different combinations 75 thousand times.and still trying to find the right one.but back to the point...go ahead and install the cdi and do the oil change as necessary.

I just bought my 2008 new and installed the Dynatek CDI last Friday. I don't know about the ease of starting, but it made a big difference on top end speed.

Don't worry about the oil break, never had a problem with mine unless on really steep climbs. Had the Dynatek in for 1.5 years and no problems. Doesn't help with starting, mine starts good still but stays in a warm garage, doesn't like starting after sitting outside in cold weather for a few hours, but in -10 C it is okay for starting.

The main thing it does is it removes the top speed limiter an increases your rpm limit stock I think is about 7400 and depending on ignition it raises it to some where between 8500-- 9200 and most ignitions advance the timing which will usually help your performance but you will see a big difference on your top speed probally atleast 10 mph depending on you set up but it probally want affect cold starting

if starting is your concern, I think dynatek's coils will help you a bit in that department.

I think best bet for fast starting is a battery tender, the Dynatek CDI's have a higher brown out voltage so the CDI has a hard time actually sending fire to plug without a pretty hot battery.

Actually the standard box only bumps you to 8000 rpm limiter. Coils and upgraded plugs helped my cold starting.

Something to Tinker with

PM me if you are looking for a Service Manual.

If you mean non-programmable Dynatek it is 9200
