Honda Phantom TA200 questions.

Post by jeebeeg » October 8, 2019, 8:53 am

My Phantom gave up on me on the road, no more spark.
Of course I checked the wiring, connectors, coil and spark plug.The coil seems to be faulty, but a swap with one laying around did not cure the problem.
Tried to check the CDI, pulse and igniter.
Now there are AC and DC DCI's and this one looks like something in between.
Without a wiring diagram I am not able to figure this out.
Does somebody here have a wiring diagram or perhaps any other info about this ?
Thanks.

Might be a long shot jeebeeg but have you had a look at the main Earth cable or connector that Earths the Engine to the frame its a thick cable might be worth checking it.

When ignition on do you get 12volts at the coil?

Thanks for your concern.
Vlad, good thought, but I did check earthing (an easily overlooked one) and that was ok.
Tictoc, being raised with coil battery systems, this would be the way to go.
I am told with CDI systems you get a pulse at the coil when cranking the engine.
I would go with simply replacing all components, but Honda Nong Han did not even have a spark plug for me..
And for swapping with generic parts I would need more info at least concerning the CDI unit,
