As you can see the price is a little high which is what prompted me to search for alternatives. I tried a 4t DC CDI but the timing was too far advanced at anything above idle. I ended up using this DC CDI at Parts For Scooters for $30 which is meant for a 2 stroke Honda Dio. Part # 169-158
It may seem a bit daunting to try to re-wire a CDI to work, but these 2t DC CDI's are surprisingly simple. Although they have 6 pin connectors they only use 4 of them; 12v+, stator, ignition coil, and 12v-.
Here's the Eton wiring diagram:
Here's what mine ended up looking like. I had cut the wires while trying a few different configurations, but if you're using this CDI for your Eton you can use the original plugs. You only need to swap the ignition coil (white/blue) and 12v- (black) pins around.
I thought I should also add a quick tip about the DC CDI here: when I was using the battery that was junk that came with the scoot I experienced very hard starting- when I'd hook the scoot up to a battery charger it'd start on first kick! I purchased a brand new battery and she now starts right up everytime with no problems.

Fox: Anyone who is logged in can see it but it's down at the bottom so most have either chosen to ignore it or haven't discovered it yet.
