Rottweiler Rub

Doing some routine stuff today I notice that the rear edge of my Rotweiler filter is rubbing against the underside of the seat. The edge of the foam is starting to look a bit tattered.
Installation is tight and correct; 2010 990 Adventure.
Anyone else notice this? Should I worry and or do something?

My ITG filter also touches the underpan of the seat.

I fabricated the filter base and tried to make it sit as forward as possible but it still touches the seat underpan. I don't think this is important.
Cheers.

Thanks

If i wanted to do the pre-filter thing, I guess it might be a problem. I don't, so I have officially stopped worrying. (about that anyway )

Whilst on Rott filter..........what oil are you using. I used No Toil last time and although very sparing on cover it was clogged in less than a thousand miles on road only?

No Toil on mine.
I just did the re-oil - hence my original question. i'd put about 5000 km on - it wasn't plugged at all, but a fair bit of grit washed out of it. throttle bodies were grit and dust free.
Does your bike get wet/muddy a lot (Surrey i notice )

Same here. I have the ITG and gefr's base plate. The pan was hitting ITG's plastic frame and pushing the base plate down, but only if I pushed the seat down.
