Posted: Thu Nov 09, 2006 6:58 am Post subject: 600 mile check-up


I have a new 06 fjr. I was quoted appox $210.00 for the 600 mile ck-up. Is this a fair price ? the dealer suggested to use a yamaha oil product in the differntial. more money , But better. Are there any other recommendations?

Thank You

My dealer pointed me to the Amsoil synthetic differential lube, said it was the best stuff. I am running it and it's doing fine and costs about the same as the Yamaha standard diff lube (I ran that in my '03 for 23K miles and had no trouble).

I have never used the super expensive Yamaha synthetic stuff. I think if you run a quality product in there you'll have no trouble. If you're an Autobahn stormer, the best stuff is probably a good idea.

In the UK the first service is free. Is that not true everywhere?

Not here in the USA Alan. I suppose that may be up to the dealer and the buyer to negotiate at sale time but it's definitely not assumed to be included here. Mine was low cost cause I did it myself. The manual tells you what should be done at the 600 mile point.

After a brake and clutch line bleed, change of all lubricants, oil filter and a steering head retorque, this bike continues to run very nicely. I'll have the dealer do a TBS and a fork oil change but I do the easy stuff myself.

Oh, Cangler, $210 doesn't seem too out of line. It really depends on what all they do for you. Make a checklist from your manual's maintenance section and be sure they do it all. For $210 you should get a pretty thorough service.
