    Notice how much front end is lowered even with a17" wheel there's tons of clearance.

    Yup....missed that

    If your running a 70 series 4x4 tire up front yank it....lol

    Shortest 17" I found when running a17" was the pilot pure 120/60/17.....and I've tried a few.

    My friend works for Lingenfelter, he is coming over tonight to look at the problem and will most likely cut up and modify the header so the turbo sits in the right pocket as pictured above.

    Nem how is the oil return set up on that bike? Is he using a scavange pump or just straight into the pan?

    I talked to Rich @ RCC to return & refund for my header, he wont do it. We talked about my turbo and his header was made for a GT2560 and my turbo is a GT2860, so a buddy of mine has a smaller turbo that im going to try and see what happens. Rich said the GT2860 will have clearence problems regardless how i mount it. Im not going to give up, it will spool one day or another!

    just put a 16 on the front of it call it a day, You wont have problems then. If you keep looking for other ways to come around mock this up mock that up you going to have way more into then you would just changing the front end.. just my opinion
