clearance issues...

07 R6
front wheel clearance

I recently had my rims powder coated and installed new bearings [ all ] afterwards I put on the dust covers on either and they are sticking out about and 1/8" - 1/4" more than they should. So now i can not put my wheel back on because it will not fit inbetween the forks. I am positive that the bearings are in as far as they can go and the seals are in correctly, but still the dust cover sleeves stick out too far. Has anyone ever have this problem occur or have any suggestions.

Sounds like the bearings are not seated.
I know you said they are, but the extra witdth came from somewhere and that would be my first guess.

Also might be stupid, but I had a problem with a wheel on my 06 and simply flip flopped the dust covers, and it went on....
Maybe I didn't have them in right the first time also though.
