Today spoke with the dealer who did the recall and serviced the bike, he gave me the history of my bike and what was done at the time of the recall/service.
The 2nd owner bought it in 2007 with just 18 miles on the clock. He did not ride it much either clocking up an average of 346 miles per year between 2007 and 2016.
The valve gear was replaced along with the lower fork brace, and even though they did not have to Piaggio picked up the tab. The oil was changed twice, the first time to flush they system. It was noted that it had been running hotter on one side, and the throttle bodies were tuned to correct this.
I'm a happy boy
