1981 Honda 200 no spark

Can anybody help with this? I have a 81 honda atc 200. There is no spark but it will run when towed with another atv and bump started. Will not start with pull chord. Once it is going, shut it of and it will start again with pull chord. I tried it a dozen times afterwards and starts no problem. Come back the next day and will not start again. I replaced the ignition coil at the stator. Still the same. Could it be the cdi? I assume that's the little black box mounted in rubber under the gas tank.
Any ideas?

I had same issue. CDI was the issue. Something happens to those boxes when they see temp changes. Mine would start but not restart once it was shut off till the CDI cooled.

I'd replace it before doing anything else. No electric start very few things it can be

I just finished a rebuild on an 82 200

Yes the CDI should be on the frame under the gas tank. Black box with several wires going in

Try tapping the CDI while starting. The printed circuit board can have a broken trace that can temporarily mend itself with the tapping.

CDI. That was it. Starts up and runs perfect. Thanks for the advice. The old bike hasn't run correctly in about 15 years. It just got replaced and sat in the shed waiting to be resurrected. I can move on now to repainting some stuff and order some decals for the tank and fenders. Now I have to find correct red paint. Anybody know correct paint code?
