Please don't rip off this guy's design for your own profit, and please don't post up the schematic. This guy isn't getting rich off such a small market, he's an enthusiast selling a clever product at a dirt cheap price, pretty much for the fun of it. Why steal his design to save a few bucks? How would you feel if you were him? It'd be different if he was charging $300 or something, but come on.
I'm an electrical engineer, I could buy one of his and have the design figured out in about 5 minutes and start building them. I'm not gonna do it, I don't have the lack of ethics the Chinese do.
By the time you build and troubleshoot your own, how much time are you going to have in it, especially if you're not a EE? Probably several hours, maybe you get to push the bike home sometime when your homemade version fails. Give the guy a break and support his innovation by buying his incredibly inexpensive and clever CDI.

Do you seriously think American companies (forget China!) don't buy their competitors products, reverse engineer them, and implement parts of the design, or improved versions, into their own product?
