I got a new spark plug and both sides are right as rain.
I like how it turned out. I can see now this is how these bikes are supposed to look. There's still a few things wrong with it though. The head needs a valve job real bad, and the issue with the balancer chain tensioner is bugging me. I just want to get the plates before I bust it down again.

I think Cyorg is right about the adjuster, with his level of confidence. If you want quick answers to engine questions go to Honda Twins there are a bunch of people there that know those engines well.
Didn't read this whole post but it may answer your question.

Updates here... got the bike back from inspections and she passed. Bullshit with German paperwork be damned. Ended up having to buy another set of tires which match exactly the size printed on the title. Even though my dunlops are better, safer, and fit. Awesome.
Got it back home and adjusted the balancer chain tensioner. Here are a few pics
I adjusted it tighter, but didn't dare go too tight. You can see the mark is now just left of 12 o'clock, so there's still life in the chain. It sounds about the same at idle, but when I rev it up it sounds much better. Heres a vid.
That has some serious mechanical racket going on in there, sure hope you can sort it out.
