Default Pipe little too long?

I have a Sirio XXX with the included EFRA 2611 pipe on my V-one RRR Evo 2 WC, the pipe seems a little too long and rubs against the front tire when turning to the left. any help to solve problems?

you can try heating the pipe and bending it out of the way very carefully without bending anything else too much

You could just buy a smaller pipe or maybe even different headers might shorten it a bit.

You can not heat the pipe!
Dont even try that
I run the same combo on one of my RRRs and it is a tight fit.
Use a shorter header.

I run a RRR and mine is fine with the 2611 and its original manifold, How ever I ran the new Sirio 2653 and the new manifold that comes with it and it appears to be too long as it does interfere with my steering lock ??

what size tires are you guys running for the fronts?? I used a sirio and a 2611, and it was long for sure but 60mm front tires were fine.
