Oh, by the way, when the forks were empty of oil and springs I moved the wheel up and down in its travel. If the travel is supposed to be 6.7 inch as bikez.com says, then it appears the fender will hit the pipes coming out of the brake union before that 6.7 inch is taken up. I'm thinking I will tilt these back some when I replace my brake fluid.
Here are some pictures of how I solved this problem. I guess that this may cause problems if you do not take off the lower fairing part like I did, for when the fork travels in, the pipes are bent backward, so that they need more clearance than what is given in the original fairing configuration.
