The new machines are so efficient with their electronics now, the spark plugs seem to be a lost art. The primary thing I would say do, is tho put a small amoujt of "anti seize" on each plugs threads to make sure that since they are in the engine so long before checking or changing, that will keep them from ruining an aluminum head. You could "degree" them, but that is an unnecessary performance thing they do to maximize fuel burn.
Also, don't pull on the plug wire to pull them off the plug, pull the actual cap. You don't want to break the plug wire.
Oh...be careful putting the spark plug in the head, do not cross thread the plug!
Keep up the good maintenance and ride, ride, ride.
