so the install itself was pretty straight forward. got it all in and was putting everything in place just gently snug so I could get everything to center properly before putting the torque to the cinch bolts in the tree when I realized I couldn't turn it to the right but about 1/4 turn and it would bind up. WTH..... after looking it over good I found the fork tubes were hitting the fairing subframe and locking up
it looks like the fairing subframe was bent or maybe just warped. either way there was no way to just adjust it,,, SO I took a long heavy bar and bent it out just a little and then all was gold
so the install is complete. I found my brakes were getting down some so I decided to go ahead and get new ones and replace them now rather than tear it down again later
hopefully I will get them in and be able to ride again by the weekend.
really looking forward to seeing how it handles with the new trees installed

not revising my trail but was wondering if an inch longer pair of shock would effect setup i will be doing shortly. on my bonneville i have quality Bitubo WME shocks stock length 330mm + sprung for midweight, if i need to stiffen i will prolly get scrambler length shocks, just thinking ahead as my chair is in transit NOW!!!
