I’d have to see your rulebook as to their wording. Does each spigot count as a point of attachment?

Yes, they count, so one in the middle and one at the rear make the three points. I could add 10 more if I thought it would help and I could find some place to do them.

Mind you, the large hose clamps have been fine so far.

One of the cool things about this bike is that no one will ever know what it is. I thorough explanation would overwhelm most people. You might get "Nice Harley. My uncle had one just like that." In high school, any motorcycle you ride in on will put you on top of the coolness mountain, let alone a fuel injected ironhead.
