ok i have a problem with my 600.... only time the #1 cylinder fires is when the rpms are up there at about 4500rpm... im guessing its my cdi box or something else like a carb cuz it kicks in when i choke it at like 3800 rpm and when its not firing i killed it and took the plug out and it was wet.... i pulled the carbs out cleaned the hell out of em put them back on with the same problem i even switch the carb with one of the other ones with the same thing... so as my airbox was pulled i took a look at my cdi box boy what a mess.... the spots where the wires go into were full of silicone and looked like crap...when i pull it off i snap a pic of it for yall to see... any suggestions on what else could be the problem would be appreciated

Now that i know you have a triple.....I guarentee that you dont have a bad cdi. There are only two wires that come from your cdi that go to the 3 coils at the bottom of your engine. What type of sled do you have. Most triples coils are wired in series, and all three plugs fire at the same time. Yea i know, this sounds dumb because its wasted spark on the other two cylinders, but the allows them to be built cheaper. When cdi's go bad you loose all spark. Sounds like a coil problem to me. Take all three coils and have them tested. Also, I would still try carb adjustments. But i really dont think that its your cdi.

Sounds like its either the coil or the plug wire or the plug wire boot. It could possibly be the plug also. You said you took it out and cleaned it but you should actually replace the plugs. Most of the time just cleaning the plug doesnt fix the problem. I have never been able to get a spark plug to regain 100% of its usefulness after it has been fouled.
