Issue hitting my hands on the front fariing when turning
Hi everyone, I am a proud new Ducati owner but wanted to see if anyone else had this issue. I just picked up a 2008 1098S and when I turn 85% either way my knuckles are hitting the top fairing. Has anyone experienced this before? ( I have XXL hands but did not think this was normal)
Any ideas how to fix other than lowering the clip ons?

Yes it is normal, it was the first thing I noticed when moving my bike around in the garage.

There is a small amount of play in the dowels for the clip-on bars. Loosen the pinch bolt and rotate the bar to the rear. It may be enough to allow clearance at full lock.
