tire warmer fit

I recently purchased Woodcraft tire warmers for track day use on my 1299 Panigale. Unfortunately there is only 7.0mm clearance between the front fender and the tire surface. The tire warmer will simply not fit through this small space. I cannot be the only person having experienced this issue. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Moto-D warmers fit. I’ve been very happy with them. I bought them after having issues with the woodcraft warmers not getting fully up to temp. I suspect they were pulling more wattage than my Generator was providing. The Moto-d warmers have performed flawlessly for three years now. Bike is a 1299s stock fender and I’ve ran Dunlop and Michelin slicks and Dots.

There is also a bit of technique to getting them on -push the tire, pull taut, push, pull etc.

Same...loved the disconnect bit it doesn’t fit under the fender without tearing the fabric at the grommet. The 1-temp Chickenhawk’s slide under nicely...and heat well. I’ve got the Pro ones too but they’re thicker. They do look cool.

I have Woodcraft warmers as well. There's some friction/rubbing due to the quick disconnect when fitting them, but it will fit. Doubt it hurts anything unless you're really that worried about the underside of the fender.
