pittmeister I had a friend with similar calipers on his Ducati Monster and ran into the same issue. If the calipers are the same, you can remove the pads while they are still on the forks and that will give you a lot more clearance to remove.

I have found it helpful to place a block in the removed caliper to maintain the gap for reinstallation.

You might also find it helpful to drape the caliper in a soft cloth before removal so that you don't damage your wheel rim finish.

esq'z me Push the pads back into the calipers a bit. That will let the caliper tilt slightly yielding more clearance. There is enough clearance there. They had to put them on you know.

Dragster 800 front wheel / caliper removal question

I'm trying to remove the front wheel from my Dragster and when removing the calipers, it doesn't seem to clear the rotor. The caliper makes contact with the rim before clearing the rotor. Are there any techniques or tricks that might help out with this?
