I have an '03 Magnum 330 and the CDI box burned up, which I now know is a common issue with this CDI box. Problem is they are not cheap, $250.

A '02 Magnum 325 CDI box is the same physical size, has the same connection and is 200 bucks cheaper ... but is a different part number.

Can the 325 CDI box be used in replace of the 330 box? Has anyone tried this with or without success? I am not knowledgeable enough to know.

Any other suggestions? I am buying a service manual to find out exactly why it fried but my guess is that I kept trying to start the engine, turning it over and over, during my rebuild with the charger on the battery.

Thanks!

Most folks are not going to know this answer unless the person has tried this, and I think that would be a rarity....it is doubtful if some Polaris shops would know this.

There is a chance it would work, and your just trying to save money, and that's understandable, however, you might consider a warrantied after market CDI made specifcally for your unit/ATV. And still save a bunch of money......:)
