Glad I bought a Yamaha and then another and another and another...

All of the mfr's make good bikes. There are always horror stories and success stories.
The point is, it's pointless to make it sound like, "Oh buy a brand X and you will have no problems".
It's like the endless argument about Fords vs Chevys.

We know his engine has been disassembled to clean out debris but we don't know what kind of debris... was it broken clutch plates? broken gears?
He aint telling us except that he is being screwed by Yamaha and/or Mancuso.

Not every bike is the same... LOL
I would buy an R1 because they are great bikes (thats why people buy them right?)
My R6 got 35,000 miles, got valves adjustment and clutch replaced and other then that it has been a bullet prove bike.

Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki.... this all are great bikes! Just because one went bad we can just blame the whole product right??
so what?? you get one bad apple and now you dont eat apples??
