    2016 Sea Doo Updated Ignition Coil Question

    Does anyone know if the spark plug screw on tip still has to be removed for the 2016 Style Sea Doo Ignition Coils that have a screw that physically holds it to the valve cover? I bought the kit for my 2006 GTX that comes with the new 2016 style valve cover and ignition coils and want to make sure I am doing it correctly. Thanks for the help.

    My '17 GTX has the tips removed. I'm pretty sure '16s are the same.

    I tried to push the ignition coils on with the tips and they seem to go in all the way but probably better to take the tips off. I can't find anything in the manual that talks about the spark plug tips.

    I just spoke with a couple of other people who said the tips need to stay on so not sure which is right now.

    How come the first response says on his 2017 the tips were removed. If the tips stay on then that means the only contact with the spark plug is only the tip. If you look up into the ignition coils there is a small spiral wire and with the spark plug tips on it will not go around the spark plug tips. Thanks
