Somebody advised me to heat up the high places on the airbix and push them in a bit, that worked.
I also cut some short metal pieces to connect the airbox to the tank support bracket, about a 20mm offset from stock.

I had an issue with the swingarm brace and the muffler support bolt, it's head got trapped under the brace, so the swingarm was not swinging down. Plus, the clutch was slipping. I did a whole track day with it like that.
On the track day I had both those issues, I was demoted for not being able to keep up out of the turns, I also had to rise off the seat and ride the pegs through the bumpy corners.

I redid my muffler hanging rackets and fixed that issue.
The slipping clutch I figured out when I looked at the installation warnings for new clutch discs, it stated "They should NOT to be used with 100% synthetic oil". Bummer that's what I put in there!
So I drained that out and poured in standard motorcycle oil, the clutch seems to be gripping good again.
