Got a pair of these late in the riding season and installed them. I have just over 8K miles on bike. Change oil and filter at appox. 500 miles (yeah I know I'm crazy) since day one. Thats appox. 15-16 changes. Well was dying to see what if anything was on the magnetic tips after I put 400 miles on her...THEY WORK. The same stuff you see on the final drive magnetic plug is what I found on these tips. For this reason I will never be convinced to go 4000mi btw. oil changes nor will I ever be convinced to go with synthetic oil because of the cost of frequent change-outs. IMHO. Bout time Spring got here. Ride safe. Gary

That is a hell of a waste of oil and your not saving wear on the engine with 500 mile oil changes. You are causing more wear by changing every 500. That is fact . You could see it if you had samples sent to a lab. Wear metals spike on the graph every oil change no matter what kind of oil you use.
