yeah...no leaning into the turn for you :LOL:
that is the first time I have seen a rack-mount installed like that :eek:
does the angle of engine affect anything?

I don't believe the angle affects anything, that is the only question I had. The engine runs smooth and seemingly normal. My first three tanks of gas gave me this result, 182,178 and 184 mpg.

That is a very clean looking ride and install. . .

Do you have a counter balance on the left side it has
to ride strange wanting to lean right?

A counterweight is absolutely unnecessary as with such a low center of gravity, it is unnoticeable. I did have to cut the kickstand shorter to avoid a guaranteed tip over.

I forgot to add... maybe a piece of sheet metal under the engine to act as a skid plate ... better wear marks/scrapes on a 5$ piece of metal than your engine 8) 8) 8)
