Presumably you have the correct bar?, should be a 52.5cm.(20.5") , one size
smaller than the 12.0. As suggested by James (and the Naish manual), if you
have not already tried, moving your flying (back) lines from the outer
pigtail in to the central or inner one also helps but you need to experiment
