It's curved for clearance, like a lot of modern streetbikes.

proper amount chain-lube, oil drain plug properly secured, stock turn-indicators still intact(Uh...I've bought 5 replacements over the years, I think), braided front brake-line(see above..no oversized rotor), dual-radiators,

AND...MOST important, an Eagle-Mike DOO-HICKEY !!!!!
