Readjusted my handle bars to a more up right position. I'll try it this way for a while to see if maybe I'll like it better.

You may want to check into your regulator. If you have a voltmeter or multimeter, check the voltage when the bike is off, idling, and then revved up. There are some other posts that go into more detail about it but you want at least 13.5 preferably more Volts when the bike is running.

Very nice! There's also these but yours probably cost less and don't have that "gold" color.

Bolted on a Thruxton turn signal bracket and new signals, replaced a bent foot peg mount, added the Triumph accessory socket. Waiting on a Lucas tail lamp
