2008- Camshaft problem - Ticking noise

I have a 2008 CBR1000RR RR8. It keep ticking noise somewhere between 2 000 - 4 000rpm. I check valve clearences and replace camchain tensioner. There was flat spots in the top of some camshaft peak. That's cause this ticking noise. Those flat spot's are ~1mm wide.
Now I'm gonna ride to the end of next summer and let the dealer do the repairs.
How crappy this new Honda can be? High oil consumption, clutch problems, etc.

Mine dosn't eat oil. There is allways used Motul 7100 10W-40 high performance oil. I change my oil and oil filter after every 6 000 km. Blade have now in the odo meter 15 000 km. My next bike dosn't really are Honda. I think that i have BMW in the next year. K1300S
