FJR Service supplies

Postby stevew » Wed Feb 18, 2015 8:25 pm

Hi guys,

My usual service place has sold their business and I'm not that impressed with the new peeps. :cry:
So I might as well bite the bullet and do some basic servicing myself.

Is there a spot on the forum with a summary of 3rd party supplies available for servicing a Gen 1; Oil filter, plugs, final drive oil, etc.
I was spending ages using the search function but not really finding that much other than a reference for the oil filter (Z411?)
Or am I better off just ordering Yamaha parts online?

Any assistance gratefully received.

You are going to save yourself bucketloads from now on mate.

I get my oil, Penrite HPR Gas 10, from supercheap or repco depending on who has the best price at the time. The yammy rear drive oil is an absolute ripoff, there is nothing in it to justify the huge price. I get mine from a mate who buys a 20 litre drum for $200, a massive saving considering yammy is $50 for 0.5 litres. Just make sure the rating is the same. I don't remember the yammy rating offhand but one of our more knowledgeable members should be along shortly with that info.

I have a Gen II and got my iridiums (part number CR8EIX) on ebay for about a quarter of the price you pay at supercheap, I dunno if they are the same number for Gen I. Iridiums will last you way over 100,000km.

I also get the oil filters from ebay. I use Hi-Flo filters (part number HF-148) again I dunno if they are the same for Gen I.

Hope this helps :)

Excellent, thanks guys. :clap: :clap: :clap:
I'm glad I asked, I'd probably still be sifting through the forum posts gathering the info.
Maybe one of the mods could make this a sticky somewhere? :pray:

Hi Steve,

I was a bit of a novice when I first serviced my old FJR. But I was surprised how easy they are to do a general service on. The oil is very easy, just take the drain plug out, remove oil filter and put new one one and then fill it up with some new stuff. Just as easy as a car :dance: . The other easy one is changing the gear oil in the shaft drive as there is one plug at the top and bottom. ( bottom one has a magnet so you can check if there is steel fillings floating around ). The only things I found hard was replacing the radiator (most of the fairing has to be removed :twisted:. Changing the light bulbs you had to have double jointed hands.
I brought all my supplies from supercheap.

I do all my own servicing. Changed the front fork oil, flushed the radiator, pulled both wheels off for tyre change , greased diff spline, separated diff from swing arm ,greased uni joint, greased all swing arm pivot points , installed new rear shock and done my first TBS. The fjr is a good bike to work on. The tappets are the only thing out side my skill level so far and will have a bike shop do those for me. :handgestures-thumbup: Those of us that have not tried there own servicing, I encourage you to have a go, lots of Imfo on these forums . Buy some good quality tools and enjoy yourself when you are working on your fjr. 8-) Cheers for now.

Well said, also if something happens on the road, you have a chance of fixing it so that you can get it home.
For punctures I highly recommend Slime and a couple of plugs. You can buy a good small compressor. I had a tomcat and it was brilliant and only $35, Slime do a similar one that you can buy at most auto places. CO2 inflators will not completly inflate your tyre.
