Thanks for all tips and concerns, as I have plenty of room to learn and question my thoughts.

With a Cali, you don't really need a centre-stand - the sidestand you have is the envy of the entire planet!
How about fitting an old-style sump that has an internal filter - PITA at service-time I know, but it will allow you to put the front pivot where you want it.
Do a search on Armec Sidewinder-equipped Guzzis & you'll see how they do it.
