Hi Eric,
The CDI system was pioneered by Tesla you know the AC guy
who saved us from Edison's DC night mare, anyway the system is a good one using multiple sparks at lower rpm's for a complete burn, & the short duration of the spark is good for higher rpm's, the short duration of the spark & the nearly instant recovery is what allows the mutable sparks at lower rpm's causing easer starts, a little more power, & a little better gas mileage through complete combustion.
PS As to weather anyone here uses one I would guess over half, I have two, a AL6 & a 7AL2, the 6 is on a stocker the 7 is for the worked engine
