Default How long to leave oak chips in RIS Secondary

I have a 1.085 RIS in secondary and 1" oak cubes soaking in Makers Mark bourbon ready to pitch.
How long can I leave the oak in secondary? Is 6 months too long to leave them in there while the beer conditions?

Do you have oak cubes or oak chips? Oak chips need a relatively short contact time, oak cubes a much longer time. Here is a link to a thread with alot of good info http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f13/tips-wood-aging-119445/
