You have been to different dealers to me then! I took my R65 to a Melbourne dealer to get a service & tune up done as I was having some idling issues, whist it was there they found a stripped diff drain plug. they called me and gave me a quote to strip the diff and helicoil the hole which I approved. After I got the bike home on closer inspection it was fairly obvious that the diff had not been touched and the helicoil had been done in situ.
They didn't manage to fix the idle issue either, when I mentioned that on picking up the bike their response was something along the lines of "we don't like working on these older bikes anyway"
At the time I had my heart set on buying an F650 gs Dakar, but the whole issue was enough to make me buy a KTM which I have had ever since
Mostly harmless.
