Spark Plug replacement.

Why is the interval so low? Looking over the service manual and they should be replaced every 12,000 miles. I guess I'm about 6,000 over(woops!) I checked an re-gapped them last time I had the motor apart and they seamed ok.

I replaced mine around maybe 12k and they needed them. Could feel a big difference once they were replaced.

I go with 10 to 12 K miles, on the plugs and Air filter and try to sink it with an oil change too.

Most bikes will benefit from a plug change every 10 -15k miles, especially with today's fuels and the additives that are in them.
