headers issue again

After waiting 3 months I have finally received my replacement
Headers from GSF. I have fitted them only to note that the right
Hand header is hitting the engine case/timing chain cover.
I do not want to leave it like this as it could eventually damage or
Or crack the engine case due to vibration and heat.
Has anyone else seen this or live with it?

Thanks

Tim

Simplest way to fix would be to slightly dent the tube.

Bend it cold, heat will make it brittle.

Agree. Shouldn't need to heat, just whack it.
