    Okay, what did I do wrong?

    Hi 'tiger,
    "wrong" is a bit harsh, I'd say "less than optimum" but Gawd! that's a pretty bike.
    From the photos:-
    Not installing a fork brace in place of the front fender will wobblicate your steering.
    Those pleated tapered intake pods do NOT let the stock carbs work well, even if they do say XS on their endplates, Swap them for unipods.
    Put some kinda covers (even the stockers) over all the exposed stuff aft of the carb pods.

    I don't love them - I prefer a convex lens, these are completely flat mirrors which makes it very difficult (at least for me) to actually see anything in them. I've always used the round convex mirrors on all my other bikes, these one just happened to come with this one. Other than that they seem well made.

    Couple of phone pics from my 60 mile rumble around rural East Devon last week. Bike running great & looking lovely if I say so myself. IMG_20200703_133342.jpg IMG_20200703_133352.jpg
