Faring panel grille rubs on cooling pipe?

Anyone with an F4R that suffers from the grille on the left fairing pannel rubbing on the coolant pipe. As you can see, its marked it quite badly. I note that the grille has a small section cut out of it (as viewed on inside face of the panel). I haven't made any mods so assume its factory standard.....or factory bodge! Is yours the same??

Mine doesn't do that. I am trying to remember if there is a rubber shield for the aluminum tube. I will look when I get home.

What happened to the rubber shield that is supposed to be on your aluminum tube?

Just kidding. The rubber shield is further forward.

Never seen something like that.

I just looked at mine and there is about 1/8" clearance between the tube and the screen. I wonder if you have a bent tab mounting tab for the fairing or if the tube is on in such a way that it sticks out too far?
