Would anyone be able to post the length of the CBR 600 sticks along with the dismeter I can't tell if they will fit my 250 but if they would I'd imagine it'd run much much better . I would be a bit concerned if they will spark fast enough but it's worth a shot . Thanks guys

Yes it's for the H and l models, maybe your coils are dead, or plugs, or you have wired them in wrong?

What testing have you done?

If you have 12V at the coils/sticks, and you have connected your pickup coil then your CDi is dead or you have a break in your wiring, or someother issue, I. E. No resistor on grey wire, or dead plugs

If its a full total loss loom there is very little to it, and if its not giving a spark with the original coils then it's likely a CDi or loom wiring issue.

Has this loom ever worked since you created it?
