Procom CDI Review

Posted 05:34 AM

Okay. So after of watching and reading posts BBR, Big Gun. Yoshimura. I decided to get a Procom CDI and test it for I just got it Friday and installed it afternoon.

Unfortunately the recent wat might prevent me from it today.

The unit is typical. package but smaller than the item so it is not a direct-fit replacement. to Procom’s website it increases the rev from 9,800 RPM to 10,000 which I like. I do not need, nor am I for, another 1,000+ RPM (or no on a stock engine.

I am solely in the increase in initial advance of two to degrees.

A little background.

in the mid 70s and early 80s when Chevy V8s others) dropped to a miserable we found a lot of gains by increasing the advance from 8 degrees to 16 or 18 degrees BTDC. Most HEI were capable of 20 degrees of advance so this gave us 36 to 38 of total advance. It worked with low compression engines stock iron heads slow burn).

We also brought full in earlier and all carbs were to accommodate the new timing curves. The in off-idle and bottom end was very The top end also benefited from the 8 to 10 digress of total advance as did economy.

People were at how much more power was from such docile

I have been thinking the CRF230 with its 9:1 (or less) CR also benefit from initial timing and/or a curve. I have no concern the total advance as I’m this is already close to it needs to be. As I stated earlier I am not a junkie who lives on my rev limiter.

I am to increase the off-idle and low-mid of my bike. The Dial-A-Jet gave it a wake-up in the low-mid already so not too sure what to expect this new experiment.

Below are some pictures of the CDI in the stock CDI holder. As you can clearly see the package is quite a bit smaller. The air and small filter element is the air for the Dial-A-Jet system. The last is from dyno work le French did on a modified engine. I read … stories bad Procom units — No no run, or failure later.

I two just in case.

My CRF230 is stock except for what is in my signature.

More to come.

Here we go.

The bike started up. No better. No worse. I rode a bit to get it up to operating temperature and off I went.

The is still a little wet so I didn’t much given mediocre conditions. I would call the and low-end response now twitchy. The is now extremely sensitive to input. The change results in immediate speed change.

Again — I am talking off-idle and low-end. The midrange the same or maybe slightly No room to try the top and I really don’t anyhow.

The one thing I noticed was the change in exhaust sound. I know how to describe it except the aaa in is now a hard aaa instead of a soft Make sense?

The sound a low CR car engine also changes you add timing, as does the throttle

The Dial-A-Jet installation allows me to now the front end at will with a twist of the throttle. The new CDI added a bit With the Procom CDI I found the lifting the front tire out of while I was still on the seat. It lift the front tire standing on the pegs before but while I was on the seat. Before you all cry BS I only weight 150 pounds.

The has tons of off-idle and low-end It takes a handful of throttle in with no problem. Once it into the low-mid it rips the loose or pulls the front Power slides are a joke the Dial-A-Jet and Procom CDI.

They are far easier to start and far to stay into longer.

I to run a section where I was testing week. I came out of a turn and the pulled the front tire as it did the Dial-A-Jet installation. I decided to into it, figuring it would out and drop the tire before the turn. Well. My hand was not very good so I was not able to back.

The extra hit from the CDI the front tire off the ground a little bit longer than it did I missed the turn and hit a small and hit the ground. I rarely fall so I BS and went around to try it again This time with hand position.

Sure I had to back off to make the turn.

The bottom line is I got what I More off-idle grunt and low-end grunt. As far as high-mid and top I no place to test right

I suspect there will change to those operating and I could care less.

sure many of you are thinking BS. . I the best thing I can do is set up a camera or on the Go-Pro and show how the bone-stock 230 the front tire. It makes me while I’m riding. For the I am a cheap SOB. I don’t in gimmicks.

I happen to know a lot timing and carburation and I see no reason why I not get the results I did.

I believe the Dial-A-Jet and Procom CDI the bike is a machine. For an investment of $150 and Procom) you can’t go wrong IF you are an and low-mid torque junkie I am. When I say my bike is bone-stock I clarify a few things. I am using a c/s and turning a very big aggressive IRC VE-33, not some tiny, stock, worn-out, tractionless tire.

I run the same tires Al Baker and equipped every one of his showroom with. So when I say the bike slides easier and longer not because the rear tire is a worn out POS. It’s the engine is making a LOT more

I wish I could have the bike with the Procom CDI and no Dial-A-Jet. I bought a Procom CDI for my partner’s CRF230 so we’ll see he thinks.
