2. Is it normal for the plastic belt hosing/covers/base to warp after a while (see photo for misalignment) or should I chalk this up to a lazy mechanic. (see photo below) Should I be worried at all?
here are some photos from my bike for the o2 sensor routing.

as for the covers, i would take them off and see if you can get it to sit flush and correctly. theyre just covers so it wont hurt the bike or anything if you take them off and put back on
