Thanks for the suggestion about avoiding the factory fairings, Pete. I did look at the Fairings-etc ones initially, but figured I'd try to save on postage as I need to order a couple of things from Vans as well, but it might be worth paying that bit extra to avoid the aggro of ill-fitting fairings.

I re-did that safety wire today, and it does look much better. Safetied the other side and made sure it was done the same, alas no photos...
