I currently have 6000+miles on my bike, with at least 4000 of those at 70mph at 7K rpm, with zero issues

If you happen to own an Enzo Ferrari, you'd have to buy 12 of those $25.00 spark plugs. Bummer.
Gotta love iridium plugs. When I got my first CRF450R no where in town up here had these plugs... Except Honda at the price of 55 bucks!

Wow... $55.00 is pretty steep... here in the U.S. it's about $25.00 for the CRF450R NGK plug... and for the '12 CRF450X it's only about $14.00.

I'm so use to paying less than two bucks a piece for NGK's for my XR's.

I imagine the guys working the Honda dealership parts counters see a lot of jaws drop when 600RR owners buy four spark plugs... "That will be $84.00, plus tax". Ouch!

Riding hard? Isn't that a problem that only afflicts some BMW riders?

Man Claims BMW Motorcycle Ride Gave Him Two-Year Erection, Let Erection Rage for Two Years Before Suing

He knows not where he's going, for the road it will decide, it's not the destination, but the glory of the ride.

I wish this notion that modern engines should be babied would die once and for all. It is not true for motorcycles, cars, boats, airplanes or lawnmowers.

Gauge in the green (or in the CBR's case, not red) = good.

Gauge In the red = bad.

It's that simple.
