I agree with the points that others have made. #1, the stealership would use it as an excuse to add billable hours to the total, and #2, you'd have no idea if the parts you're getting the closeup of are yours (and, in the case of the splines, no way to check unless you tear apart the rear end and look, which pretty well defeats the purpose of taking it to the stealership in the first place).
My solution is to not take it to the dealer. Ever. I'm no mechanic, but I learn, and have a friend who is more than willing to teach me.
My first computer, for all intents and purposes, was one that I built myself with guidance from a computer tech (just after punch cards went out of style). I bought every piece for that computer and spent one Friday night putting it together to his instructions while he sat and watched. I figure that I paid about $200 more doing it that way than if I had just bought it off the shelf, but that $200 lesson on computer repair did much to lead me to where I am today. I intend to learn motorcycle repair in much the same way...
Now, to begin my nastygram to the dealer....
