Yes, there is a very small population of people who actually do manufacturer specified maintenance. Having worked in and around the motorcycle service industry for 5 years now, I can attest to these things first hand. What I have seen would shock the "mechanical inclined" individual and would have been a great reality show. I got people interested in helping me fund a pilot for that show, but sadly the shop went out of business before I got a chance to get it shot. I've seen it all, 4 stroke owners never knowing the bike had oil (or an air filter) and running it 60+ hours before it finally kicked the bucket. I've seen 2 stroke's come in having never changed the oil for the bikes entire life, years and years on the same oil. It came out like molasses, but the bike still ran and had no damage in the gearbox or clutch.
So yea, once you see those things, you tend not to be so concerned about them.
