Remember this is a sport touring bike lol, the fender will never come that high
As long as you are safe, that is my only concern. I’m well aware of the class of motorcycle, but equally as aware of what type of compression your suspension might experience during an ABS inducing Miami panic stop. Regardless, I trust that you know what your doing, and eagerly await test results.

I fear under heavy braking, you may have interference between the heads and your front fender. Before I installed a head in that location on one of my bikes, I tied a ziptie to the fork, slid it all the way up, did some heavy braking and wheelies because the front end occasionally came up. Found that it was a complete no go as I did not have the clearance between the front fender and where the head would have been. I know options are limited, but please ensure that your suspension has complete range of motion.
Yep my light speed machine's race track suspension make it no go on my bike, I had to put an LI tri head on my full dresser up front, 1- head center of bike sticking as far out as it can, right under headlight, then added a head on each side of the air sheilds that are wide on front forks , some are clear with chrome some all chrome, it put my outside heads exactly at 14 inches from center both ways. Due to each bikes front ends sometimes one will do sometimes 2 but there is the good old tri heads, since 2 heads would probably not cover headlight since the 2 heads are now covering well the left half of the bike and right half of bike but I bet there is a gap in the armor in the center for headlight and helmet shots as gun will only see 1- head at a time in most conditions if mounted on each side of bike and not under headlight add head above headlight and sticking out as much as you can so it is seen from both sides to cover you better esp over head shots.
