Usually if that is the problem it is because your fairing stay could be messing up the angle and pulling your fairings up. Do you have a stock fairing stay?

the measurement between the centre of the front spindle to point on engine (see photo) is 497mm, this may be very slightly different on another bike as the forks are raised through the yokes by 5mm on this one, hope this helps tim
