Front wheel clearance questions - March 3, 2014, 08:30 PM

I put my track fairings on, finally. I'm worried about the clearance between the front wheel and the lower fairing. Some pictures below.

Right now, bike is on front and rear stand. Measurements shown. Have not put on the cowling for the front wheel yet, but shouldn't be an issue there (I don't think). It's just over an inch clearance without any load.

Did I do something wrong, or is this gap adequate? Have heard some warnings about having contact between the lower fairing and front wheel under heavy braking.

Thanks guys. One step closer...
Jason, I might end up giving you a call about installing some parts - I was considering trying to do spark plugs and throttle/clutch cables myself, and then all my free time up and disappeared in a puff of smoke.

Also....when considering pulling apart engine stuff....

Thanks. I am nearing completion - just cranked down the new clipons and got the grips situated. Now I can't for the life of me remember the routing for the vent/overflow lines. Any recommendations on this? Do you guys have these run down and out, or just into the bellypan? I'm forgetting if gas affects fiberglass...

Resin should be stable with just a bit of gas on it.
