valve check/2007 fjr

My FJR is coming up on 50,000 bought it last year with 32,000...I have no idea if the valves have ever been looked at so I am planning on this task for winter project...Also plan on CCT upgrade if it isn't a green dot....

What parts o-ring, gaskets ect will I need to replace???

thanks in advance

You can do a valve check without replacing any gaskets, valve cover gasket for sure, and the right timing cover gasket can be re-used if removed carefully. CCT will require a gasket.
You need two o-rings for the coolant tube, that's about it.

Valve clearence check.



Just for some info on the valve clearance check. Follow the link to YouTube (TwoWheelObsession) he does the check on the GenIII FJR (which should be almost identical to the GenII). I didn't know if your familiar with doing it, but he is very thorough...(I have an 06 FJR).

Hi Dan, welcome to the forum.

Technically RaY is correct but .....

Your bike is 12-13 yrs old. The older they get the more likely they're going to need replacing. Especially if the covers have never been removed before. As this critical piece of info is unknown, if it were me, I'd be buying the valve cover seal and the timing cover gasket.

Also, if it were me, I'd never open that video. It's for a Gen 3. Some critical info is different and if you do it like him you'll screw it up on a Gen 2. Proceed at your own risk.

I'm sending you a private message. Post back here if you don't get it, being a one-post newbie complicates it sometimes.

Now, back to your questions:

In addition to the 2 above items: coolant pipe o-rings, CCT, coolant, spark plugs, throttle cable lube, vacuum port caps. I think that's all that's required. As for "good to have": hose clamps (the OE ones are crap), black cable tie wraps.

Don't be afraid to ask why! There's a thread somewhere where we all listed stuff, we'll see if we can find it.
RaYzerman and 2GENAE like this.

With ya Russ, but I've found the valve cover gasket never goes bad (save yer money), but you might tear up the timing cover gasket if you're not careful (it's only $10). I can't watch the vid.

I did in fact have to replace my valve cover seal one time when some dum-bass pinched one of the half moons and it spewed oil. I advice people to spend the money.

One other thing, for yoose new guys:

Please consider making or modifying your forum signature to include the bike year and model you own. That way there's never any confusion since different model yrs have different stuff and are disassembled different ways.

To create or edit your sig, hover over the word 'TOOLS' in the black bar near the top of the page. A drop-down menu appears, click on 'USER CP'. Then on the left you will see "EDIT SIGNATURE". Click it, do it and save it.

Adding your location so it shows up under your user name can be helpful, too! This is also done under TOOLS/USER CP. Then click on 'Edit Your Details' on the left.

If you survived a SuperTen valve check, you're golden!! FJR is much easier.
