Canadian 03 WR450 dealer support?

How are the Canadian dealers handling this this woodruff key/starter issue these days? (I called mine right after the S.B. came out and they said they couldn't help) Is it any better than here in the states? Discounts on 04 upgrade parts? Anything?

Before these newly designed bikes even left Japan I made a decision to buy from Canada, because of registation issues here in CA (at that time,) knowing that the warranty would not be honored here in the U.S. I had faith in Yamaha and got burned. Its a great bike, but next time a re-design comes out, I'm waiting and might switch colors myself.
The other manufacture's new bikes have problems, wonder how they are being handled.

Hopefully, my pocketbook and patients will hold up with my Yamaha’s lemon ’03 WR450. I also want to keep it until the CFR450x’s are out…if not, I’ll give up a few ponies and go with a CRF250x. In either case, I’ll never ride blue again. In fact, I just went Red on my son’s new bike two weeks ago (he wanted to ride blue like his dad) and when it comes time to trade in a bike deemed a “lemon – 03 WR450 - very poor residual value” by the press, I’ll be glowing Red… so bright, it might even be KTM Orange.
