Anyone know how they're fixing woodruff keys?

Keep in mind that you are NOT assured that the TSB was performed correctly unless you are there watching and that is going on the assumption that you know what is suppose to go on anyway. How clean were the tapers, did they use the right grit lapping compound and did they let the Loctite cure for 24 hours as per Loctites recommendation.
We are also not talking about your typical Loctite from the hardware store, it specifically for taper fittings.
I wouldn't take your dealers word for anything unless you have a long-standing relationship with specific people. Call me skeptical but I was reassured that my bike was all ready to go (before the TSB came out) but upon first warm up it turns out I barely had 2 mm of oil on the dipstick. Now wouldn't you think checking the oil would have been done by the service department?
I feel that unless you use machinist dye to check the fit of the tapers before you do the TSB and then again after, that is the only way to compare what affect the lapping has done. What happens when the 2 rounds of lapping did not get a proper fit? I would suggest that some are having reoccurring failures because of just that. Better be safe than sorry...
