It will probably be obvious to all owners if this is common. If not, you may need to snap a pic of what you find disheartening with the cowl fitment.

fbto could also probably inspect all the bikes at his dealer since they have/had quite the lineup.

The OE cowl doesnt fit that great for any of the S1000RR... havent seen one that looks perfect.

I would suspect that they used the same cowls

Default Mine looks good, but not 100% perferct

Everyone is right, it's a little off, but only if you really look for it.

I've seen more than half a dozen of them, they all sit too high in my opinion, and no way to adjust that I can see. Part of the problem seems to be the clearance you need to install it. A race tail will fix the problem.
