2016 R1s

I bought this bike a week ago, first day at 759km I hear a rattling. Stop, bring it into the shop, number one rod is off. What a nightmare so far on my new bike. So what happens to the engine after they fix it, do you think I'm going to run into more problems? Why did this happen?

That rod usually goes from low oil pressure for some reason. That's odd so early it usually happens after someone works on the bike and forgets the seal in the right side cover where it feeds oil or some other work is done. Bike was brand new?

Brand new bike, it happened on my second day out. I was still breaking in the engine. Yamaha says all the parts are on backorder, might be a month before they arrive.
