Crap, I just caught this. FWIW, if you where going to remove material, you should have removed it from the bottom if the steering head and not put grooves in the webs of the highly stressed triple clamp. These are huge "stress risers" you have created, watch them VERY CAREFULLY signs of cracking. Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Other than that, keep on truckin.
Life is short, don't waste it....now get out there!
