52,000 miles plugs?

Bike ran perfectly before and it does now.


52K OEM plugs and I did them all, the miles I speak of.

My manual says replace plugs every 12,000 km which is total BS for iridium plugs, I did replace at 12 k and 24 k, im up to 40,000 km now and will not be looking to replace those plugs anytime soon as the old plugs did look as good as gold.

Wow, those sure are worn out. Look at how the ground electrode is tapered down where it sparks... What is the gap at now?
