comment How can I mount K-728 diverter valve without any clearance behind it?
You are exactly right. The instruction manual that came with the part did not specify a total wall-cavity width, it only referenced a wall width (the actual drywall+tile itself). I had to look online at the spec sheet (us.kohler.com/webassets/kpna/catalog/pdf/en/1145567_4.pdf) to find that it can actually stick out farther than the wall by a certain amount and it shows how to measure it at the bottom of the last page. Feel free to modify your answer to make it more clear based on new info if you wish

I think I found what I need... This is not in the manual I have. I only found it online: us.kohler.com/webassets/kpna/catalog/pdf/en/1145567_4.pdf

Perhaps I can move them forward a bit. If I move the mixer valve forward, I will definitely have to cut a bigger hole (for the entire white piece to stick out of). I believe the instructions gave two options... small hole or big hole. I've been having a hard time understanding them though.

There are screw holes on the diverter to screw it into something behind it. In my case, there's just drywall there for the other side of the wall. I obviously can't screw into that. It's a Kohler diverter so I will look in the instructions a bit more to see if they have suggestions.
