thats because the PC guy you used didnt take the time to consider what you are going to be faced with when done.
I always use silicone high heat plugs and caps for all threaded holes and studs, I also mask off mating surfaces so the re-install will be painless.
This experience comes from me being the one to re-assemble and have to shave, grind and sand to make things work, one learns what causes extra work real fast and rectifies the situation when manual labor is involved


and as far as the original thread question, Clayton does tear down and re-assembly for a lot of people, he brings me the parts, I coat em, he re-installs and calls you when your bike is ready.
