The FJ Owners Club has been running over 24 years now and the last 21 years it has been my full time job.
My back ground stems from an Aircraft Technical on fast jets in the RAF so it was an easy and natural progression to open up a Club workshop (Fudge m/c, name due to the FJ’s nickname) to work on the much more simple, FJ1100 and 1200.
The Clubs workshop has built up an excellent name and now boasts 5 star accreditation with the Good Dealer scheme (see gooddealerscheme.co.uk) with its massive knowledge on this one make and its bonus of cheap parts and labour charges. This means that it can be very busy in the spring and summer months, normally with up to a three week waiting list.
Many members forget that if a major service is due annually, then its not important if the job was done February or August, your linkages will still be greased, your shims will still not have gone out of adjustment etc. I have always serviced my bike at the end of a year; this allows me to have a busy spring/summer riding the bike instead of ervicing or repairing it.
Prices both parts and labour are a fraction of your local tyre kicking dealer and their normal £250 charge for an oil and filter change!
To support those who regularly bring their Fudge in for its annual servicing etc. I will offer a discount of 10% on its labour if the servicing is carried out within Yamaha service schedule (see Maintenance Details page in the club catalogue).
