3530-40 is the CDI I have on my 06 500 4x4 FIS. thing ran. changed carb, ran worse, played with old carb several times and eventually battery died so i attempted to jump it. the wires on the thing are a rat's nest and for the most part I think its sorted out. but there is no power coming from the CDI. no spark whatsoever. and the price of said CDI is outrageous from what I see online
Although (out of stock of course) I saw a cheaper aftermarket that said it was interchangeable with that CDI and several other numbers, so I guess my question is has anybody cheated and put another models CDI on their ATV? it would be a great help in parts searching if I have some more part numbers to try.

that website says it took its last orders on August 30th, and their price for the part is worse then what I've seen sofar, is there really no matching an Auto to a manual? I found a Procom that is the cheapest/only aftermarket option sofar. if I cant find a decent priced option I'm going to have to let the machine go as is, I'm already expecting to take a loss on it

here's a thought I forgot to mention, since it's a suzuki motor, would a suzuki CDI work? or did AC have to make it special? if I can cross search on suzuki I think I'm might have better luck, availability seems to suck for what I'm looking for.

Get the procom cdi they also increase power. That site is Canadian hence the price.
I would look for a used one.
