    My race bike has a batteryless CDI ignition and I would like to add an aftermarket traction control unit to it. The unit interrupts the signal to the ignition coil, unfortunately it is looking for a 12V square wave signal and the 140V CDI burst will kill it.
    Can I convert the CDI pulse to a 12V signal?
    Thanks!

    Does it interrupt signal or ground it?

    Seems manufacturer would have recommendations, as cdi is the norm.
