    No, it's not. It did originally fit exactly like you say... but then I couldn't get the exhaust on. There's literally 1/4" between the pipe and the oil tank. No room at all for the lines behind the pipe, so I bent them to go over the pipe instead. Whatever... It works and I'm happy with it.

    That's a DAMN fine looking bike............

    I will say one thing I don't like........ I sure as hell don't like that weak chain piece on the brake pedal....... That looks like a disaster waiting to happen... Those chains are made of shit....

    That's just for the brake light switch. Not essential to stopping

    Worst case scenario, you can just put your feet down to slow yourself to a gentle stop right?!

    I finally found a saddlebag and tool pouch that I liked. Put those on this past weekend, and then put a few more miles on the ol' girl. My kids named it 'Bessie" for some reason. I told them that sounded like a cow's name, but they didn't care.
