Question Tyre size and spacer!!!

Hi folks
Looking for some advice regarding my front tyre.

I recently purchased a F4 750 1+1 2001 model. It currently has a Dunlop Sportsmax 120/70 zr 17 front tyre which would appear to have been rubbing against the fairing - i now it should have a 120/65 front on - after reading a few of the threads on trye choice, i'm now concerned that the tyre could damage the radiator under heavy breaking.
I have heard a few threads mention a 'spacer'? what is this, and does this adjust the front to avoid impact, or can i adjust the front forks to prevent any mishap?

Any info will be greatly appreciated

AFAIK the 'spacer' is just to keep the tire from rubbing the front fender, but you can't do anything about hitting your rad if the tire is too tall.
