Great looking bike that does need cams unless more power and better gas mileage isn't something you like.

Are you talking play in the gear lever as linkage play or where it's mounted? The pins that hold it have junk plastic sleeves you can replace.

Seems like people fixed the buffeting issue differently. Taller windshield, crash bar lowers, fork-mounted lowers, bowl looking thing below the triple tree neck, etc.

I have a theory our body size and style has something to do with how the wind hits the legs and gets directed up which is why different things work better for different people.

The JTD crash bar lowers inside the forged crash bars like yours (lucky you) did the trick for me. They have a door on each side that once a year I open and once a year I close. They also adjust so more air can be directed at the engine on really hot days.

I have a few windshields that work well at directing the air over my head plus I use the Madstad brackets for full adjustability. Some say they look a little funky but the function overrides the form in my book on this issue plus I like they way they look.

Some people claim the Maximus or PC X tunes eliminates the need for cams and timing wheel. If so; I'd say that's real plus if true and a money saver. They can remote tune them anywhere in the world there's wifi and internet. Maybe just internet. I haven't done it so I don't know the process exactly.

Noemtz is a good guy to talk with about this.

Directly flashing doesn't replace cams but it does replace need for timing wheel. You directly change the timing in the ECU itself.

Congrats on the new bike.
