    1996 SLTX Goopy Stuff in CDI...What is it?

    I cracked open my CDI today and don't know if I'm seeing something normal or not, being the greenhorn that I am.

    There's a gooey, gel like substance all over the inside of the box. Is this normal or did something leak?

    Check out the top of the picture below....what do you think?

    OH MY GOD DON'T TOUCH IT!!!!!!!!!! The battery acid leaked into the elec box and gelled up. Remove the box and buy a new one right away!!!!!!!! Just kidding, it's dielectric grease and it keeps the connections from corroding. It came like that from the factory.

    too late, i touched it and my fingertip fell off...got 9 more so no worries....Looks like the guy who put my box together tried a little too hard.

    Oh, come on. You Know you like it, I'm enjoying being a newb for once

    Seriously though, this place has been a huge help in getting to know about both my ski and ski's in general. There seems to be alot of great people here with ton's of knowledge just dying to share it.
