Did anybody elses bike pick up safety wire during the 1st service?

Mine did on the rear sprocket flange bolts.

I guess I did get a little bit extra for the $341.48.

Incase the bolt becomes loose from vibrations or something the safety wire will keep the loose bolt in place by the way it is wired to the other bolts pulling positive tension on it preventing the bolt from coming out. By doing this you take extra steps to ensure bolts don't vibrate loose

I wouldn't say nothing. Safety wiring is used in the racing world as well as the aircraft world. Like someone else said vibration can cause a nut or bolt to back off over time. (Please if you don't know this dont panic!) Safety wiring is exactly that...safety. Think of it as a back up to the back up. All of your bolts and nuts are torqued to a certain value, and yes in theory this should keep everything tight and snug. There are the freak occasions that vibration can cause nuts and bolts to loosen up....this is where the safety wiring comes into play. And like someone else said, safety wiring keeps a positive tightening pressure on the nuts and bolts when used.

And on top of that....its looks good...and squids think you know what you are doing when you dont know what you are doing.

Safety wiring in this iinstance is more for bling than anything else. As the odds on all the sprocket loosening up and coming out at the same time are pretty astronomical.

That said, for racing and some track day groups you have to safety wire specific components. Brake caliper bolts, axle pinch bolts, oil drain plug, oil filler, oil filter (not on this bike of course). etc.

Also, because one of the track groups I ride with requires, I studied up on safety wiring, definately an art. typically for paired bolts you wire ina reverse S

Heres a great link:
