I have never changed mine. Remember to clean the ball and seat with an old toothbrush. Make sure everthing is dry before assembling. When you start to notice corrosion on the ball, you can always replace it with a plastic BB.

Since I use plastic BB's I switch mine out once every week or two. 500 bb's for $4 at walmart, I figured I can switch it out regularly and keep it clean.
