    Starter Solenoid Installation Question

    Ok so today I decided to replace my starter solenoid since it has the infamous intermittent operation and will make a click sound and no power to the starter until you press the start button a dozen times or so. The install went fine but I noticed there was a clear gel like substance on the connection posts and the small plug on the side. Is this a type of grease? Is it necessary to re-apply this substance or is everything going to be ok without it? I do not ride in saltwater if that makes a difference.

    Thanks,

    Jay

    It's dielectric grease, I always use it on all my electrical connections, saltwater or not, it will help protect any electrical connection in a high moisture environment
