    Yes, I spray my engine compartments down after every ride. I go through a case of that stuff every riding season. You shouldn't really have any exposed electrical contacts, but for all the connections I use dielectric grease.

    Excellent question...I'm curious what everyone's opinion is on this matter. I think the manual says to spray it with a silicone metal protectant? I think it's called T-9?

    Talking anti corrosion spray

    bombardier has an excellent anti corrosion spray that you can literally wet the entire engine compt down with,, a little pricey but very well worth the money. i cant remember the exact brand name of it but i bought it fromthe local bombardier dealer here in jacksonville fla. it was about 14.00 for a can of it. keeps thing looking new.

    I wonder how close it is to silicone spray. As usual with anything factory, your paying some for the name. I get my silicone spray for $2.49 but they also recently changed the chemical formula on most of the silicone sprays to comply with the environmental regulations and it seems to be different now. I still like it, just seems to be different.

    Dielectric grease is grease specifically intended for use on electrical connections.

    It does not absorb water, and it does not attack plastics. Most importantly, it does not conduct electricity. It is an electrical insulator, and provides a protective coating.

    Regular grease can affect some plastics, and some greases are mildly conductive.

    What Is Dielectric Grease?

    I believe dielectric grease is primarily for electrical connections and contacts. It helps prevent corrosion and issuers good contact. You should be able to find it at any auto parts store. A small tube will cost you a couple of bucks. Great for the trailer light connection.

    I have T-9, and use it for some things. It does what is says it does, but over time there can be be a waxy build-up.

    I also use Fluid Film, which is lanolin based

    Do NOT use petroleum (oil, solvent) based sprays, as they tend to harden and degrade plastics and rubber, including hoses and wire insulation.
