Those of us who have been around engines a long time know to check the fluids and air pressure and fasteners and all other safety aspects of riding, sooner than later.
Whenever I let someone else change the fluids in a vehicle I go right behind them and pull the stick and make sure it is correct before I pay. Had a friend get an oil change the tech forgot to put oil back in the brand new turbo sports car on the first oil change.
It was a new bike and is not caused by poor dealer prep.
M8's that have 'transmission oil migrating into the primary' is a known problem and is a design flaw.
