Question Tire warmers

So how are you supposed to put tire warmers on the front between track sessions when the front fender fairing has such small clearances. I know there's no way that the tire warmer will fit under there, so do I just not heat the part of the tire that is covered by the fender well? Is there an aftermarket or alternative method to mounting the fender that allows a tire warmer to be wrapped completely around the front tire?

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Just rotate the wheel after a little while.
Or just go out and ride!!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

To raise it, you just have to re-drill the mounting holes.....

Is 1" enough?

Ian, were it me, I'd get the warmers I want, then see how much I'd need to raise the fender.

1" is way more than you would need.

Another thought would be to remove the fender mounting bolts (now it's free-floating), install your tire warmer, and let the fender "sit" on the tire warmer. Mark the new location for the bolt holes and modify as needed.

That's the exact line of thought I had when you said an inch was too much. Thank you sir.
