Back in the 80's, working mechanics in the Yamaha shop they worked on any year bike. I was designated to the big road bikes. The problem I saw was after "X" years the bikes were DIY repairs and that made for some rather tuff diagnosis. In that respect I can understand the 10 year cutoff. But every owners mentality is different and proper questioning when the bike first comes in is sorta critical, it gives a better understanding what to look for in repairs. Also the DIY repairs will be different in different parts of the country.

If one could make an equation out of this, it might go like this.

(Steel and aluminum times time equals snapped bolt)
