Can you bend my headers?

Is there a way to bend your header(not that much) to keep it from touching you're fairing. I've tried beating on it and that doesn't seem to help much. I have a full exhaust on my bike and it melted a little of the fairing from being against it. It also melted through the bottom of the oil cooler radiator from touching it so I get to fix that now. It just seems like 2 of the headers on one side sit out further than the other two.

Can someone handle that 4 me?

well, not having a flower bed isn't gonna hamper the header work. A rosebud is a torch head, an oxy / acetelene head and allows for heat-up of larger items. it would be perfect for your needs.

Couple options

heat and bend headers, actually better if you can do it on the bike, so it doesn't tweak any flanges.

or clearance the fairing a little to gain some room. Give me a shout, I have everything here we need...

maybe some exhaust wrap after you bend them, just to help that much more.
