i would check the wiring. if it is like the diagram it might work. legality is a different issue - maybe the paperwork would come in handy.

i think i would pay for the kit just to be on the safe site.

it doesnt look like it is the same. it's strange though, as honda informed me that they both use exactly the same CDI.

Do you know where i would be able to get a german CDI from? i have checked both the english and the german ebay, but with no luck :(.

Also, would a german CDI affect other areas of my ike, i.e. lights, etc?

Take it to a dyno place - Mess with mixture so it runs like a dog - Get dyno cert - Fix carb - Keep low profile for 2 years. Done :grin:

Am I the only one who seems to have got round this one!? :confused:

The online spec's I have for my '99 SLR state the bike is 34bhp, there's no point restricting a bike by 1bhp - especially if it involves £200!!

Considering the bike is now nearly 10 years old, I'd be suprised if it still kicks out 34bhp anyway. I've spoken to a couple of local shops about this and they all say don't bother restricting the bike as it will most likely be under the 33bhp if it was dyno'd. I'm happy with that... :angel1:

Now i'm confused...

I'm not sure whether to just leave it as it is, or to go for a different CDI.
I have specs for the bike that say it kicks out 31.9bhp, but that is measured from the back wheel.

Does the power output have to be measured from the back wheel or the crank? Obviously it will be kicking out more at the crank than it would at the back wheel because of the power losses that occur through the gearbox, chain+sprockets etc.

I even phoned up a few traffic police stations about this! One copper said that if he saw me riding a 650cc bike he would take it away to be tested, another said that if i had a dyno certificate saying it produces less than 33bhp it would be watertight, regardless of where it was measured from, and another said that i should ask a solicitor!

I checked the 'construction and use' part of the road traffic act, and it says nothing, and the DVLA dont even know.

As i said at the beginning. I'm confused.

This is just it, it's a ridiculous rule and impossible for the police to properly check other than taking your bike away from you and dyno'ing it. The chances of that happening are very, very small but made greater if you ride stupidly and constantly speed and do silly overtakes.
As far as I'm aware, even in the event of an accident they are unlikely to take your bike away for dyno'ing unless the cause was likely to be linked to your speed.

In any of the above cases, a dyno certificate doesn't prove anything and they would still dyno your bike to find out its BHP. There's talk of dyno certificates, official FIA restrictor kit certificate etc, etc - but at the end of the day you should pretty much know if your bike is under or over 33bhp, and a print out of the bike spec's would hold as much stead as a dyno print out or an FIA certificate. I.e the cop will either believe you and let you on your way, or take your bike... just don't ride like a madman and you should be fine!

i am attaching a drawing from honda germany, it is in german but it looks like that only positions a + b need to be swapped.

whatever you do is at your own risk - i cannot be held responsible if you fry or mess up your bike!

be careful when moving the cable as not to damage the plug.

good luck

ps: maybe i should supply brief translation:

description:

the model honda slr 650, type rd09 is offered to the market in two different power modes (engine power 25kw and 29kw).
the difference in engine power results from the use of different spark units and changed cable positions.

a specialised tool has been developed to remove the cables from the plug.

please don't try to remove cables with a screwdriver as that could damage the cable and the plug.

to change cable position proceed as follows:

remove the lid of the cdi plug

lift the lid carefully. the lid has four latches that can brake easily.

change the position of the green cable

depending on the model move the green cable from a to b (29kw to 25kw) or from b to a (25kw to 29kw)
Could you send the diagram again? It has been a whilde and it is deleted.
