They are getting a parts list together, will order (or have ordered) and rebuild. I have had a chance to talk to and gain trust in the mechanic who is doing the work. He has several decades of experience rebuilding motors. Although, I am a little concerned that we were not able to determine the problem that created this mess.

I have asked about the extended warranty, but I guess I wasn't clear, because the service writer kept saying that all their work and parts are warranted for 90 days. The bikes warranty is for two years beginning 9/17 so the 90 day warranty isn't really helpful. At the very least, they should extend the warranty for two years from the date of the rebuild.

I am certain there will be the normal break in period after it is rebuilt, but after that I intend to give it a severe thrashing!!! Hopefully, anything that isn't tied down, will show itself.

So, now it's wait and see. But since I'm back I plan to go in today, talk and maybe take some pictures.
