FJ1200 Valve Adjustment

One of the (many) good things about the FJ is that it's fairly easy to service. This evening I checked the valve gaps. The frame tubes are wide and give good access to the valves. The gaps were all ok. Adjustment is by shims above buckets so if adjustment is necessary the cams don't need to come out (as is the case with my CBF250)

Good access to valves

Gap record sheet to keep track of things

Cam lobes are in perfect condition at 70,000 miles


  1. That gap record check sheet looks like double Dutch to me!!!

    1. It's the result of years of work! It makes sense to me, but no one else.
