I was doing a throttle body balance, and just figured while it was all open to change out the plugs. The original's coming out were perfectly clean, no carbon build up. The gap on the originals were wider than the new ones. about 0.95 I usually just change anything I can that is changeable when I have something opened up. This winter/spring I had all the tupperware off and Ivan flashed the ecpu, changed the antifreeze even though I changed it the year before, lubricated the brake pedal and whatnot. My bike, my intervals as I see fit, and happy with. I keep a notebook with date and milage and what I've done. I never plan on selling her so it's just for me to keep track. At any given time I can tell how many miles are on my current tires, brake/clutch fluid, headlights, seat, etc.....
Yea I keep a chart on all the bikes and know what was done when. I also generally go by my bike my intervals as I see fit.

I have 30K on my plugs, it's running great and my gas mileage is normal for me (about 51 mpg). I was going to change out the plugs, bu went ahead and let them ride. Good to hear yours looked good. I changed out the plugs on my CB at 25,000 and they looked perfect as well. They are special plugs and cost a butt load but went ahead and put the new ones in anyway. Now they have 26,000 miles on them and I don't plan on changing them for awhile.
