I have some info that may help.
Not guaranteed though!
When I first got my kr1s, then my electrician friend came round to solve some problems on it.
One of the screw ups he found was the stator and pickup wiring was butchered.
Thier are three wires from the pickup, and one or two go to the cdi.
The bike would start but wouldn't know where it was on the cycle, and as I wound on the throttle it would rev to around 7500 to 8000 and just brick wall.
It would also spit out a lot of oil fuel from the silencer!!
Matthew then swapped two wires in the connector block around and pop!
Off we went! perhaps the issue is in the wires telling the cdi what rpm it is like that?
every orinary pick-up like on a KR1 or any other bike with a CDI before there was injection only has 2 wires.
pick-up only does one thing : send a signal when the notch on the flywheel passes. If the engine runs, it automaticaly knows where it is in the cycle. making it run bad because of a wrong "timing/thinking where it is in the cycle" can only happen if the woodruf key has broken and the flywheel turned some degrees on the crank, or the pickup moved radialy (which is almost impossible).
