Morning,
As an aside, what are your thoughts on the convert as a daily ride?

It's fantastic, just like a large scooter, but with a nice rumble, comfortable as well..

UJ checked out OK on inspection. Just some dry grease creating the tight spot. This disappeared after it was moved past its normal range of movement. Physio for driveshafts?

A tip I was given many yrs ago was anytime you take off rear wheel pull out the swing arm and UJ re grease swing arm bearings and pop the UJ area into an oil bath ....put it this way my swingarm bearings have not yet been replaced over the last 26 yrs+ I have had the bike! I feel no wear and the bearings spin smoothly, well they did last year. only had to replace the UJ once may be ready for another refurb soon but it has done a fair amount of mileage.
