It isn't a matter of the model being the same for many years, many dealerships wouldn't work on an early 1500 when the last 1500s were under ten years old, so it's entirely possible a dealership may not be willing to work on a 2001 1800 in 2012. It doesn't matter to me since I don't rely on dealerships for anything, not even parts. That is a contrast with other makes of motorcycles I've been to a couple BMW shops that have no problem working on twenty five year old bikes. Ditto many Harley shops. Honda does not support Goldwings very well.
