As for the CDI, do you think this is an indication of a failed unit?
There is really no way to test them without the proper equipment. HV Oscilloscope (in circuit) and or capacitor test equipment(out of circuit). Capacitors tend to leak when they age, that is, lose their voltage capacity because of leakage across the dialectic. I'm not saying the CDI is good or bad.....just that testing a circuit with improper testing equipment may or may not give the desired results.
