is there any difference in the stator of a cdi ignition and a Ti like on the newer models?

The TI stators only contain charging windings. The CDI stators have charging windings, as well as windings to generate high voltage for the coils.

They are absolutely not interchangable. The easiest way to identify them quickly is that the TI stator has three wires, the CDI 5(?)or more. The TI stator generates 252 watts, the CDI only 170. If one installs the ignitec ignition system on a CDI bike, a 252 watt TI stator can be used. TI stators cost substantially less also.
