Yes, that is correct.Crank sensor / pickup coil tells cdi when piston is in position to fire and cdi sends spark to plug
Yes, it could be.So my problem might lie in the cdi
My guess is that it takes a while to reverse engineer the parts that come off of an actual unit that was purchased, pilfered or stolen after the copied machine is into production. Then you have to set up production lines to make it available in quantity.mine is a 2012 though. i guess bennche was a few years behind on technology. i guess they have to do that to be within the laws of business, patents etc.
