Yeah, coming together for sure. I'll bet that new front end will be like night & day compared to the old one. What kind of ignition coils are those?

Im using a harley dual coil. Takes up much less space under the tank than 2 old coils. The front end will make a huge ride improvement. At least it did on my last build. Waiting for the new wheels. Should be laced and trued this week. Fingers crossed.

The mono shock mount on a twinshock frame is bad engineering, full stop /period
It's form over function bullsh*t that compromises structural integrity with no tangible benefit whatsoever.
If its such a good idea, why didnt Honda do it that way?
Ruined bike just for looks IMO

Yes. Allows the gap to be set perfect to reduce warpage.
