06 Triumph Bonneville T100 discussion forum: Need Help

Keep reading, the top bit\´s just background but I do need help...
I recently bought a nice shiny \´05 reg T100 Bonneville only to have issues with a damaged cam shaft. I got the cam repaired under warranty but the dealer isn\´t keen on stripping the whole engine down to inspect the lower end (the cam damage looked like an oil delivery issue).
I really like the bike and think the repairs will do the job but want to get some confidence back in the engine so I\´ve decided to get some oil samples analysed for excessive wear so I can prove if the lower end is alright or not. This means I need a couple of comparator engines to take samples from and I was wondering if anyone would mind sending me three at various intervals as described below:
1. Following Oil/Filter change (i.e. new oil from the engine). 2. After 250 miles 3. After 500 miles
The engine needs to be a carb model and have done less than 3.5k miles and I\´ll need the samples between Sept 2010 and Nov 2010 to get the results back while the bike\´s still under warranty.
I\´ll pay for your samples to be analysed and send you the results, I just need your oil. If you can help, please email me \
