Congrats, that’s a pretty bike.
Came with the mini windshield, modded pegs. oem rear rack, bar risers and a seat pad. About as clean as you could hope for if you ran a new bike through a water puddle. Got lucky and got back to town in time to get the BMV stuff done. Gonna need the carb fattened up, very cold natured and too much pop and cracking on decel. I will adjust pilot screw as recommended here on the site. Still A Good Day with a short but fun ride.

Nice bike – welcome to the cruise …..
Adjust mixture screw before replacing the pilot jet.
While jets are non-adjustable the mixture screw is usually opened up from the lean factory setting of approxiamtely revolutions out from seated to a more richer 2 to 2.5 revolutions.

(If you know) did those bar risers require any cable or brake-hose lengthening?
How much rise do they provide?
What brand are they?
I only ask because, believe it or not, putting a 57-degree (riser) stem in (in place of the FLAT/180-degree, stock stem) and 4.5" high "moto-style" bars on my Trek bicycle was a real PITA! LOL I was able to reuse two cables so only had to buy two cables, but getting the rubber grips off was a REAL *****. (Then I had to take them off again, and add a pipe, inside, on each side, to further widen the bars, to fully "fill out" the grips, to the grip ends, due to the curvature of the new handlebars not letting the lever perches slide in-board far enough. (Obviously, I'm not "over" that job yet--LOL).
I've seen references to "Pro Taper SE ATV High bars" here--any idea if your bar risers are higher or lower than those bars?
