18,000 mile service

Brought the bike in because it died on me in Silverado Canyon. They replaced the fuel pump assembly and decompression lever. They also went to do the 18,000 mile service and have found that i need new brake rotors front and rear. They say they are out of spec.

How could rotors be dead in 18,000 miles? This sounds ridiculous to me. Anyways if they are only .3mm out of spec is it really that big of a deal? I just put new pads on and they want to scrap the new pads as well.

My biggest question is will sprockets, chains, and brake rotors from 2006 F650gs fit on my 2011 g650 or have they changed anything? I would like to purchase aftermarket parts and install them myself rather than pay 500 dollars in labor for bmw to install there overpriced parts. But there is no aftermarket parts on most websites for 2011 g650s. I can get parts all day long for the older f650 and I would imagine they should all fit. Am I right?
