CDI Restriction
« on: April 21, 2017, 06:31:16 AM »
If I cut the wire in the CDI to remove the restriction, but don't do anything else, how much faster can I expect to go? This is a 2015 KYMCO Agility. Thank you.

About 10% faster. Be prepared to run at some high rev`s whilst not really going that fast. Better start with getting a smooth drive boss, more result and less strain on the engine. (And your wallet, and the enviroment.)

Lastly, after 2013, is there a restriction in CDI ?

My 2015 Super 8 based on the Agility platform took me from 28 to 33-35 after pulling the purple/red wire.

After a thorough check, I found that my CDI was first cut at the back and then cut the purple cable, so I really do not have a limiter

Over the years there have been several forum mentions the Kymco OEM CDI fully limited maxes RPMs at ~7500.  With the purple wire cut it is still limited ~9K RPM.  This is a good thing for the longevity of a scooter, if true.  I don't have an RPM gauge to test and have no hills to try to test the claim.

Can`t confirm the 7.5K OEM RPM limit as I didn`t have my rpm meter when I still had it limited :p Sounds legit though. With it de-restricted it seems to be limited at around 9.2K RPMS.

Are the wires exposed or do you have to hack in with a saw? If so, what part of the box do I hack? I have 2014 ag50
