    I just put standards in mine every 20,000km as stated in the maintenance guide. The ones that came out at 20 were perfect so I can't see the poit in changing them more often or going with iridiums.

    Ive installed NGKs iridium. If you ask me I can feel the differens between "normal" plugs and this one. The engine is running much smoother and I think the accleration is much better with the iridium plugs.

    Same here, when I pulled my old ones out they looked like they were brand new too. So I see no reason to change.

    Replaced my stockers with iridiums at 14,000 miles. Stock ones looked perfect and the bike runs exactly the same as far as I can tell. Results may vary...

    Re: Spark plug choice...

    Purely because the plugs are a bastard to change, I went with long-life Iridiums.

    No obvious performance difference noted, but the Iridium says it's good for 100 000kms, so if I even get half of that, I'm happy. (and probably wont have to change my plugs ever again!)

    I used to change my plugs every 5000kms on my Z750, CB750 etc!

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Yes, they are a bastard to change on the older bikes so I went for the longer lasting plugs. And no difference in the performance for me too.

    Replaced my stock plugs at 20k miles and they were perfect. I've had the Iridiums in there ever since, that's almost 60k miles ago.
