everything seems to be seated right and i cant seem to adjust the fairing fitment at all as the bolt holes have no wiggle room the only way i can seem to make it look right is by squeesing the fairings to the point the tail light mount is bending but unfortunately as its part of the plastic fairing and not metal i cant bend it to adjust it
Maybe give her a good wash then strip down the tail and put it back together paying close attention to tabs going on the correct side of other parts etc. Maybe you could have a look at a parts fiche and confirm you have everything. That's all I can think of at this point.
I bought a cheap Chinese taillight off eBay a few years back for a gen1....fitment was horrible...found a OEM taillight with all tabs and Velcro and fit like it should....soooo who makes your taillight?
