    Quick Question, Do the Plugs that come in the Sea-Doo Oil Change kit come pre Gapped

    Are the NGK spark plugs that come in the kit pre-gapped?

    TIA

    Never trust the gap on plugs that you take out of the box. If a plug is dropped on the end, even in its box, the gap can change.
    It really takes no time to check the gap. Also don't use one of the cheap round gaping tools sold at the check out counter. The only thing they are good for is opening a too tight gap.

    I can never understand how people will spend $$ on parts and performance but won't gap their new plugs.

    Steps off soapbox.

    Im more of a woodworker then a mechanic so i only have the above average basics for mechanics tools. Ive never gapped sparkplugs before, but after your post i think im going to check them! Can i purchase a good gap tool locally?

    Where can i find the specs for the spacing? im using the oil change kit for a 2011 GTI130

    I have never gapped spark plugs either. I guess it wouldn't hurt to check them.

    Maybe this will help you understand.

    I don't feel like checking them.

    Also if you read the question, he asked if they come pregapped, not do we check them. I think I answered his question correctly.

    Yes the plugs come pre-gapped too 0.8 mm. Have just checked seven different new plugs in a box of ten and they were all at 0.8 mm. Shop manual gives the plug gap at 0.7 - 0.8 mm or (.028 to 0.31) (in).
