KTM 950 SE front wheel travel issue

Has anyone found a solution to the front tyre clashing with the safari tank brace ? Have modified it ,now the tyre hits the radiator guard or the brace ! Have asked around and best I come up with is run a lower profile tyre ! It's a new bike for me ,this is hopefully old news and easily sorted.thanks

We ground ours back a bit on good advice from Spencer and good advice it is, we have never had a tyre touch yet.

Also our forks are 10 mm up through the clamps.

See pic attached, hope this helps.

All the rubber mounting grommets are bad.. The oil tank has dropped a little and rotated forward. Replace the oil tank and radiator mounting grommets.
If it has a Blackdog skid plate on it that will be most of the problem, it hangs from the oil tank and pulls it down along with the radiator.
There are way better options for skid plates out there if that's the case.
