Hot Shot CDI Box for Honda FT500 Ascot

Hot Shot CDI Box

Honda Ascot help

1982-1983 Honda FT500 Ascot owners needing a replacement CDI ignition box — Honda discontinued the part long ago — finally have a solution thanks to the new Hot Shot CDI box from vintage electronics specialists Rick’s Motorsport Electrics. Made with heavy duty components, Rick’s says the Ascot CDI was developed with help from Ascot owners to work best from the rider’s perspective. A selectable rev limiter switch lets the owner choose the stock 6,800rpm setting or a 7,500rpm rev limit. $120. MC
