    GOO around Spark Plug Boot

    From the factory, what is the gooey stuff around the spark plug boots in the head of the Kawasaki 4-stroke engines? Petroleum Jelly, or a special compound?

    Dielectric Grease.
    Protects against salt, dirt, and moisture intrusion.

    Spark Plug Goo

    Don't forget to also remove plugs and grease spark plaugs thread. This will stop the plugs from siezing. Seen this happen before and plug snaps in Head. Heard it cost the guys AUD $1300 to have fixed.

    Just make sure you use antiseize compound on the spark plug threads and not the dielectric grease!!
