You did VERY well.

While hardly the expert some of the other posters are, I've never had a problem with single discs...while living in Chicago city-proper, nor out here in the rural roads of Wisconsin. When my 90s was killed, I put a second disc from it on the slash 7, but really didn't notice any great difference. Your riding style may influence your decision.

Pick up a Clymers manual or both.

If you like the bike, you will love the bike. One of those things.... And in that era, the airheads were individualized by most owners...Brown side stands, different fairings, handlebar swaps, etc. I haven't done it, but I think the airheads most benefit from the enhanced generator modification. Goes from 280 400. Don't think it causes other issues. Folks here will be able to advise you better.
