spark plugs

Ok, pulled the fuel tank to adjust throttle cables and replace a leaking fuel line and I realized that it would be a good time to replace the plugs. Bike has 11k on it and according to the factory manual, they should be replaced @ 8k miles. I'm replacing the air filter too. The plugs are pricey and I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere else, maybe this forum, that they arent due until 30k??? From others experience, when did you replace yours?

Frankly I don't have the cash to replace the plugs at the current rate and if I have bad info then I won't feel as guilty about not doing them now.

Re: spark plugs

if they are ngk iriduim tip plugs you do not need to replace them till 30k that is when i replaced mine, the book states 30k for the 954 and i believe the 929 is the same.

Re: spark plugs

the maintenance manual recommends replacing the plugs on the 929 at 8k, 16k, 24k,....
