44350 Miles - New Autolite XP3923 Iridium Spark Plugs

Have been seeing what looked like a leak on the left side of the rear cylinder, and just recently on the right side of the front cylinder. Based one advice from Spike, I pulled the spark plug covers and found those two spark plugs were not tight and were seeping. I hadn't torqued them when I put them in and was playing it a little too safe when tightening them up. Today I put all 4 new Autolite XP3923 Iridium spark plugs in with anti-seize on the threads and torqued them to 13 ft⋅lbf. It's definitely running better and after a 100 mile ride, shows no sign of seepage.

Couldn't wait. Did oil change today at about 8k miles. I had intended to go 10k. Old oil after 2 years and 8000 miles still looked good, could have easily made 10k but it's done now. Used Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10/40 with a supertech 6607 filter. All set for the next 8000 miles. Wanted to change my hydraulic oil today but was just too hot outside. Good winter project maybe.

Battery that came in bike finally died, date on battery was April 2007. That is 13 years and 6 months on one battery.
Replaced on 10/3 with NAPA AGM battery. Bike actually runs better now, is that possible with just a new battery ?
