    I can't help much, but I do have experience with sloppy headstock bearings and/or swingarm bushings causing weirdness at speed.

    ^ this is my next thought. im going to loosen re-grease and reset up next. however.

    Im having other issues now. like a possibly stuck float. and she wont start.
    but the flipped fender made a little difference.

    Some issues encountered after full reassembly will have multiple causes, keep going and you'll find them all.

    Sorry I didn't read the whole thread but I once had a bike that was new to me and seem to ride good till I went over the mountain at speed, about 55mph into a left hand corner and I happened to be pass a big rig and it went into a bad shimmy, I just let off the throttle and took it easy home. The rear axle was not adjusted correct.
