Just in case you don’t have the manual, here’s a pdf version of one. FWIW

This is the part on checking the CDI.

Here’s a variety of other info on my NX. If it helps any…

Edit: When my CDI failed, it would not start up when I made a roadside stop. After a bit of cooling down it started.
Again it failed to start first thing in morning, then it did start.
Finally it failed completely. Only then could I do the resistance tests outlined in the manual to be sure it was the CDI and not another electrical componet. ( Coils, wiring, etc.)
