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
Hi Dan, welcome to the forum.
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.
