He found nothing wrong, but pointed out that the front end needs to be assembled in a strict sequence, as per the riders manual, and mine had been assembled incorrectly

Ive had the exact same happen to me, I always take a copy of what the manual says with me when i havwe new rubber fitted now.

Mount your tires yourself.  It isn't hard and you have the satisfaction of knowing things are done right.   :082:

If this is the dealer where I bought the bike I would have a serious chat with the sales manager and the service manager about this situation. This is unacceptable. Not only the service mans response but also selling an unfit motorcycle.
