1993 XR250L CDI swap?

Hi All,

I have a 1993 XR250L which I suspect a problem with the CDI (ECU) unit. Unfortunately, this part has been discontinued for the XR250L for years between 1992 and 1996. They also seem to be hen's teeth on ebay as well. After some research, I was thinking that the CDI unit from an XR650L or the NX250 might be a viable swap. I believe these others are for 12V DC ignition systems and they have the same connector sizes. I have no clue whether the ignition advance curves, etc. are similar.

I thought I'd ping the collective to see if this has been done with any success, or possibly other CDI unit substitutions.

I have seen the repair threads for the XR650L CDI units, and I'll try this as a last resort, but I was hoping to replace the unit before I tear into it.
