spark plug intervals

Well, it is prime riding season and I just hit 8k miles.

I see that spark plugs are on the service chart for 8k.

What do you guys do? right at 8k or do you guys stretch it?


This time of year I'd rather ride than work on the bike.

To be honest, I'm thinking about just pushing it to the end of the season. I do most work then. oil change, other fluid changes if needed. blinker fluid ect............

I push my spark plug intervals on the 9'er out until I do the valve clearance checks. They are a breeze to get to with the valve cover off.

When do you do your valves?

Every 16K miles. This is also a good time to replace coolant, since I have to drain some anyway to remove the radiator hose.
