The grease I got did not come with a needle head, so I was not able to coat the inside of the coil boots, but I added a small dab at the end of each boot, following Sammk's instructions.

I noticed there were some signs of oil around the engine, so I'll probably replace the valve gasket next time I get in there. Also want to clean up the dust and grease around the engine.
Sweet! Hope that it stays that way for you and let us know after you get some miles.

Couple thousand miles later I'm going strong..
