I've removed/replaced plugs whenever I "do" my valves.

FWIW - they have NEVER looked worn-out, however my Mazda P5 has very similar-looking plugs, and my wife was complaining that the car would NOT maintain the speed in CRUISE CONTROL in a hilly area near Kelowna, so I replaced the plugs (which did NOT look worn-out) and NOW the car will easily climb that same hill in 'cruise'.

My TAKE - you can NOT tell anything on those plugs by looking! They're cheap enough to just REPLACE whenever you're 'in there'.

IF you get the SERVICE MANUAL, and the necessary TOOLS to 'do' the valves - you will spend LESS than getting it done by a dealer, and can do it MULTIPLE times, as necessary, and (probably) BETTER!

I believe that I have done it about 8 to 10 times on my '08, '09, and '15 V650s.
