Bloody mechanics

Just wanted to share this with you people,

I had my F4 done in Februari this year at a place called motoport Leek (guess only the Dutch people might know this place).

They performed a major service on my bike, but strangly enough it never run good, using fuel like a drunken bastard etc.
Reason that I went there is that (even today) I still have a warranty there.

Brought it to another place (Dipi-moto, great guys) and they told me that there were a lot of things on the bike that are not correct.

Below list is the short version (most important things):

Rear wheel bearing almost destroyed.
Front wheel bearings severly damaged.
Broken EBS relais (again, after only 3 months)
Top fairing was damaged during removal (never noticed it, but had to be fixed).
Broken clutch cylinder.
Valve clearance has never ever been checked at all.
Never changed the fuel filter, the one inside was from 2004 (first major service, so should be done).

Need to say more?

It is all fixed now at a cost (2500 Euro's) but damn, if someone tells you that they can do the maintance on your bike, you don't expect something like this.
They used to be MV dealer as well with the same mechanics around.

Just a warning for the Dutch guys (or the ones visiting Holland), never ever go to motoport Leek, go to Dipimoto, great guys, called them Tuesday, could bring the bike the next day, now that is great service

Oh yeah, thanks for reading, had to get this of my chest
