I used one set for over 15,000 miles, bike ran great and never suffered the change in performance noticed at about 10K with stock plugs. I changed them when I did my new piston install, only because I already had an additional set. The ones I took out looked nearly perfect.
I have never fallen for any of the "snake oil" ads for SplitFire plugs, but wanted platinum tips for longevity. That is what platinum gives you, almost no erosion of the electrodes for a LONG time. Cars with them usually recommend changing them at 60,000 or 100,000 miles, depending on the car manufacturer.
However, I found the bike to be a little smoother and responsive on accelleration, not more power, just better feel.
I would install them in any LT I would get in the future. Highly recommended. Best thing about them is that I got them when they were running rebates, and they ended up costing me $3 each! I liked them so much I had purchased two additional sets before the rebates ended.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
