The Yamaha XJ900 F was a half faired sports touring bike manufactured by Yamaha between 1985 and 1994 (in the UK). The XJ900 had an 891cc inline 4 cylinder engine, shaft drive and a ‘bikini’ style top fairing. Later models also had a belly pan as standard.
The original XJ900, released in 1983 with the 31A model code, had a small fairing mounted to the handle bars which affected the bikes handling and caused a ‘weave’ at higher speeds. After this, Yamaha fitted, to the XJ900F, a larger frame mounted fairing and a few other modifications which improved the handling.
Due to the ease of servicing and maintenance, as well as the shaft drive, the XJ900 F proved a reliable and popular bike for Yamaha and the XJ900 was produced till 1994 when it was replaced by the XJ900S Diversion. Continue reading →

We have, unfortunately, encountered a slight fitment problem with the Filtrex OIF032 oil filter in some Aprilia 1000cc motorcycles!
We have removed the Filtrex OIF032 filter from sale on our website and in our shop and have replaced it with the Hiflo HF152 filter.
The OIF032 filter is a paper element, aftermarket replacement filter for the genuine Aprilia OEM part #0256187.
The filter should be 74mm long and 56mm wide.
The filter is also supposed to be the same dimensions and fitment as the Hiflo HF152, K&N KN-152 and the Champion X312 oil filters.
Front view of the Filtrex OIF032 and Hiflo HF152 filters side by side
Ratchet with 10mm (oil filter cover bolts), 12mm (oil filter drain bolt) and 14mm (main engine oil drain bolt) sockets (you can use spanners*** of the same sizes, but it’s easier with sockets!)
1 x Phillips/cross head screwdriver (to remove the front access panel)
** = We ALWAYS recommend using a good quality semi synthetic or fully synthetic oil in a scooter. Due to the bodywork on most scooters, they tend to run fairly hot (mainly because the bodywork tends to restrict airflow and cooling), a good semi or fully synthetic oil works better at protecting the engine at hotter temperatures than a lower spec oil.
Tip:*** = If you are using spanners instead of a socket set, please try, where ever possible to use the closed, ring end of the spanner instead of the open end as the closed end gives a better grip on the nut or bolt (this helps to avoid slipping and rounding the head off!)
