The mechanic that has worked on my bike for the past 10 years recently moved out of state so I took my bike to the dealer for a 5k service.

I have a 1992 FXDC - when I went on my first ride after that service, about 200 miles at the end of the ride my air filter cover and air filter fell off my bike. 2 of the 3 bolts that hold the filter to the base plate snapped and the remaining bolt tore through the filter and it fell off.

I find it interesting timing that right after the service this happened as replacing that filter is part of the service. If the mechanic over tightened the bolts, would that make explain this or is it simply that the age of my bike, these things happen?

Any feedback would be appreciated.
