Okay...... I think I have a bad NEW CDI........

I measured the BROWN wire to ground coming out of the CDI - and its giving me 13V out of the BROWN wire! Which goes straight to the engine ground!!!

I decided to check continuity on the red and brown wires......sure enough, I get a beep! Could this really be the product of a bad NEW CDI?? There is nothing coming into the CDI that would ground it out - as its just a black wire and I tested it.....
