This is an (improved) custom checklist specific for the 25,000 mile maintenance for FJR1300s. It combines the emission control system and general maintenance and lubrication schedules from the FJR1300 Owners Manual. The USA model FJRs have a 4,000 mile service interval. The rest of the world has 6,210 mile (10,000 Km) service intervals. This schedule splits the difference using 5,000 mile intervals (which actually "repeat" correctly using the guide from the Owners Manual).
This schedule is more "regular" than the shorter USA schedule (i.e. it "repeats" just like the Km versions), and has the valve adjust intervals fall at natural 25,000 mile intervals, rather than the oddball 26,600 mile intervals of the USA owners manual. I believe it is more user-friendly than the USA recommended schedule, offers cost savings by adding 1,000 "free" miles to the oil and filter change intervals, is easier to remember (counting by 5's beats counting by 4's), and still provides more frequent maintenance than Yamaha recommends for most of the world's FJR1300 owners.
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:
