Arrow Thunder 1/4" clearance to tire?

I've just installed an Arrow Thunder (and midpipe) on my '06 910S Brutale. Good weight savings. sounds good, looks nice. But the can lives 1/4" away from the rear tire sidewall: Is that a concern, have I installed it wrong?

Loosen the header clamp bolts a bit, jiggle and bend everything around a bit and when it looks right re-tighten everything. Usually works for me. The Arrow's usually not a problem but the HP Corse is a bugger to get set right.

Sometimes it is as simple as moving a bracket to the other side of the attachment point.

Can you post a picture or two of your setup?

The solution? Well, I loosened the header clamp bolts a bit, I jiggled and bent everything around a bit. Got it to look right and then re-tightened everything. Then I poured myself a very cold beer and said "Thanks!"
