    I need an igniter, or TCI unit, for an '86 Yamaha Virago XV700. I was wondering what igniters from what years and engine sizes would work on this bike. I've seen some from '84 on up to '87 that appear to be the same from the outside of the unit, but I don't know about the inside of it. I have seen plenty of them on eBay, but non for an '86 700. Here is a link to one of them, and it appears to be the same as the one that fits my bike. The reason I need one is because when I bought this bike, it didn't have one on it. I am planning on buying one off of eBay and then having it rebuilt. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/84-Yamaha-XV-700-Virago-CDI_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ35594QQihZ002QQitemZ120142355447QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

    Google Virago. The 700's had some problems and there was somebody reconditioning them.
