No spark, so I checked the coil and it was bad. Replaced the coil but didn't check CDI and V regulator/rectifier at the same time. The new coil didn't fix the problem - still no spark.

Now I've checked the CDI and V reg/rect and both are bad. In addition both spark plug caps/connectors are open.

The question is could a CDI failure cause the V reg/rect, coil, and both spark plug connectors to fail? I'm hoping it isn't something upstream (i.e., magneto). Thanks for your help.

:dunno:

A bad CDI prolly wouldn't kill all those other parts. First I would check all of your connections like JeepFamily suggested. Then if everything checks out, I would be concerned and looking for a short circuit somewhere. That WILL kill all of the components you're having problems with. Check for a short BEFORE you install a new CDI so you don't end up having to do it again.
