Just so. As to installation I have no idea. I had a similar problem on my Duke which has a non-radial MC and that's how I fixed that.

The one time I've had an issue with an accessory brake lever it was down to the small pushrod between the lever and the cylinder. I took the one from the stock lever and that fixed it. YMMV

+2. The wheel is out of position. If the spacers are correct and the bracket is correct then it is likely the bearings. That said, check the bearing in the sprocket carrier as well. I had one that...

I can't see anything either but if you think you see oil in the coolant reservoir I would flush and change the coolant, and the oil, and see what happens.

If you haven't already, check the battery connections. For some reason all my Triumphs have had those get loose at one point or another.
