It is common in trouble shooting to check everything that was recently done on the item whether you think it was done perfectly or not. New parts are defective too.

My "mentor" at the shop I worked at always pointed this out to us Noob mechanics to watch for. Seems to still be good advice.

Glad to see the OP is back on the road in Mexico ... seeing some really beautiful areas. Check out his ride report.
