Next question -- anyone have tips for getting the fairing (with grommets) onto the two opposed turn signal stalks? I'm afraid of flexing it open too far but pulling the fork ears off to reposition the stalks seems harder than it should be. I rand out of time and won't be able to get back to it for a day or two.

Between now and then, anyone have experience to share? To flex or not to flex?

Thanks-

So, if you use the stock r90 or any non-fairing airhead turn signal stalks, they will be shorter than the r90s stalks. People say these don't work well with the fairing but I found that they were just short enough to flex the fairing on over them w/o dismantling anything. The turn signals will still mount and be sturdy, just don't tighten them too much or they'll pinch the end of the stalks.
If you have the r90s stalks...you may have to take apart a few things.
