how hard is it to put back together? I'm sure somebody on here would have helped. I also have the Service manual file on my computer.

some of the bolts may not fit due to the coats of paint. you may need to scrape of some of the paint for bolts and other parts to fit properly.

if they wouldnt have disasembled them in the first place you would have gotten back a crappy paint job with some parts painted and some places unpainted.

What they probably had to drill out was the footpeg pins.
Yamaha, in their infinite wisdom, put a "rivet" style pin rather than a pin and circlip set up.
I've got the pins and circlips you'll need to put it back together, if you want to bring it by we can take care of it for you.
