Thumbs down Triumph screw up

took my 2002 (KM77,000) tiger 955i round to my local Triumph work shop here in Germany to let them swap my head gasket (coolent leek when cold the old story) thay said ok, €500 +/- and to come back tomorow, I asked if I could have a rent bike till then, thay said no as thay had preped them for the winter by tacken the battre out and droping the oil out of the moto
Next day back to pick up my bike , its not finshed but I could wait, after an hour came the grease monke came out of the work shop with a screw and showed it to the boss who whent in to the work shop, he came back out and said we have a problem :shock: , as thay were putting the bike back together thay noticed that one of the screws on the cameshaft sprockets had come loose, and been loose for some time
but no prob thay would put a longer screw in and a nut on the back of the cameshaft I asked if that was ok and he said yes :? . the work was finshed all I had to do was pay and pick up my bike after a test ride by the grease monke but no such luck as I whent to pick up my bike I saw her in a big pool of coolant, er we have a little problem with your bike . thay let me have a rent bike( Bonni) on the house of course The next day I called Triumph Germany and told them what happend thay will look in to it :? .
Wait out.

I`am on night duty in our A+E dept at present and will try to call
Triumph Germany tomorrow and see what they say about buying used parts, and let you all know ASAP.

OK I talked with the Triumph shop today and thay said if I whent for the second hand part for € 60 thay would give me a writing warranty for the work / used parts .
As I used all my cash on the first job and am now skint I will go for this way out, I know that I should get a lawer and sue the ball`s of them but all I want is my bike back so I will see what happens.
Oh yes new part`s would cost me round € 450

That's kind of a scary thing to happen...

Glad to hear the 955i is back and chugging along.

Wouldn't that nut throw it off-balance? (would it matter?) why not just re-tap the hole (if that was the problem) and put a new screw in?
