CDI Variations?

Hey everyone, I'm working on a '91 GSXR1100 project a day am in need of a new CDI. I found one online that's 40C00 and too my understanding it's the EU version of the CDI, is there any difference between the US and EUROPE CDI?

Re: CDI Variations?

Although you haven't said so, I guess you're from the U.S. ?
There will be slight differences I'm sure, for emissions mostly. The 40C00 is for full power (general world market) 1127R engines - so it would work fine in yours I'm sure. My 1992 1100 has a 40c30 cdi which I believe is a version for the 1100N with 40mm carbs.
All O/C GSXRs run well with ignition advancers etc, so slight differences in the cdi curve shouldn't make any odds.

Yup I'm in the US, thanks for the info, one other question the 40c00 I'm looking at is out of a '89 1100 and when I looked at part #s they appeared to be the same but I'd just like to verify the compatibility between the two years.

Re: CDI Variations?

Is it REALLY a"cdi"? As far as I know, cdi is Capacative Discharge Ignition., which i doubt these are. They are transistorized ignition modules. An MSD box s a CDI

Re: CDI Variations?

I'm just going off the name I see online, I believe the actual name in the parts manual is "Igniter Unit" the piece that mounts to the side of the battery tray in the rubber sleeve.
