    Your front fork legs (including the wheel) are on backwards...(swapped right for left)
    The brake-plate and speedo drive should be on the left side (if you want the speedometer to work)...
    Current orientation also positions the fork drains improperly...
    IF the tire is rotationally directional, its belt seaming is now incorrect for the braking forces that are being applied......
    Putting it all back correctly will resolve all these things...
