FJR1300 20,000 Mile Maintenance Schedule

Index   Home

This is a custom checklist specific for the 20,000 mile (32,000 km) maintenance. It combines the emission control system and general maintenance and lubrication schedules from the FJR1300 Owners Manual. Note: the FJR1300 SERVICE MANUAL with the white cover is missing a bunch of service items, apparently the version with the blue cover is correct. They both have the same part and edition numbers.

Many of us perform our own service, and this page is a useful checklist for that as well, to make sure we don't forget anything. Note that Yamaha recommends that you have your dealer perform these service items, as many require special tools and knowledge.

Several items are time based, or also have time limits, rather than being solely mileage based. For instance:
