In response to Re: New Toilet Installation
: I am installing a new bathroom in my basement rough in. There is only 12 1/4" from the center of the 4" toilet pipe to the stud wall behind it. After installing sheetrock I'll only have 11 3/4" clearance. The wall has a vent pipe located even with the face of the toilet side stud wall so moving the wall would be difficult at best. It's my understanding that the Kohler toilet I purchased must have a minimum clearance of 12" to the finished wall. Will I be able to properly install the toilet or do I have to figure out a way to get another 1/4" clearance? Thanks in advance for your help.

Steve, Most kohler toilets i put in will set on a 11-1/4" rough. If needed you can put an offset flange in but i doubt you will need one. As long as you have the toilet put it together and set it against a sheetrock wall and measure from the sheet rock to the bolt holes. That should tell you your answer.
