No need -- I was one.
An '87 GTR 1000 that I eventually put 122,000 miles on. But, early-on in its life the cam lobes and followers got pitted and started to self-destruct. My dealer went to bat for me and the importer gave me, FOC, 2 new camshafts and a set of new cam followers.
Fine from then on...

Had same with a pals 80's Yam, airlock in the oil feed to top end. Needed bleed screw cracking at oil change, he wasn't aware of that.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

Not the same with my K-wacker -- issue started after many oil changers: slight at first and then progressed.
Kawasaki importer didn't protest too much -- but, did ask "If it affected performance?"
I replied that I wasn't planning on riding it WFO to find out. But that the parts were faulty, pure & simple.
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
