I've recently installed a Flex-glass ram-air body kit on my '08 1125R. I'm looking for some advice from those of you who have installed this kit and what your experiences have been with this kit.
One issue that I'm having is clearance between the side panels and the upper radiator tubes. The left side is particularly bad, causing the side panel to stick out so far that I'm rubbing the panel on the track in left hand corners.

I know I need to bend the tubes in somewhat but I'm curious how some of you have accomplished that without destroying them.
I'm also curious if anyone else is running a Barker's Exhaust slip on with this kit? The muffler sits to the right of centerline of the bike and prohibits the belly pan from being placed any higher (as is visible in the above photo). This is also causing the belly pan to rub on the track when leaned over to the right.

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

If you truly are running the Ram-air version, that setup was made to be run without radiator fans, that may be the source of your fitment problem. The street version retains the radiator fans. As for the Barkers check out this thread:

Although this isn't the ram air version, there's plenty of room in there if the exhaust is centered.
