rear brake lever(need help)

hi all
hpe u all are well

was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what to do with my rear brake lever, slightly hitting or touching the fairing. Ever since i got a new right side fairing (original one), it touches. I took it to my mechanic the other day for a service, and he was going to install a spongey thing..... but i thought id pose the question.anyone got some tips.

Just to explain it a bit more. If i put the old one (fairing) on it doesnt touch.

i guess you dont want to adjust the lever up a bit huh? trying the foam might work....don't know if the heat will do anything to harm it though.....

what if you took the lever completely off....turned it upward a bit...then re-attached it and then you could have some adjustability...... but a *flat foot* riding style is needed. have you got the bike hot a few times?? maybe this could help the plastic to adjust or kinda mold into the right position.... just a thought. as I have no idea if that would work.... is anything on the other side keeping it from going to the original position..?? ie hoses, tubes, ect...... if something was to be in the way on the left side, it would pull the right side inwards
