Angry Gap beetween the fairings

Hi....

On the other day when I was cleaning my bike I noticed that the gap on the fairings is increasing (just beetween the tank cover and the rair air duct covers). Perhaps I'm beeing to perfectionist.... but that just the way I am.
Has anyone else noticied this?
How can I solve this?


The Gap that is appearing is in the zone of the red square (gap not spoted on the pic)

had that same problem, its the fairing bracket, losen it up and pull it back, or have a friend do it, then tighten, comes from all them damn wheelies youve been doing.
yet another side effect.

No more mod listing, shits is STILL too long

cool dude, i cant tho
im deployed and my bike is locked up with a flat forn tired and all.
anyway.
Look at your gauge pod, th ething holding it and the front farings up, look at it, follow it, to where it meets your "neck" by the frame, infront the tank, under your upper triple, if you dont know.

look on the left side (sitting on the bike) youll see the bolts, get a rachet lossent both, have a friend push the whole nose up, or u can muscle it up liek i did, and then re tighten them.
your done.

let know if you still have trouble.
