Front brake line replacement help

My indy ordered Drag specialties 1741-2512 for my 12 road glide custom. Should I have to modify the mounting block that the bolt runs through to accomodate the alignment pin that is mounted on the bike next to the hole?? It will not sit flush unless I grind a small indention into the block for the pin to sit in. any help appreciated

Any word on this? I'm in the same situation. The Drag Specialties lines don't accommodate this pin on the 2013s. Can we just grind it off?

Did a little searching and it sounds like you can either pull the pin that is supposed to keep the factory brake mount from moving or grind it off if it doesn't come out.

Just in case anyone else is looking...

Pull it out.
I used a pair of vise grips twisting and pulling until it popped out. It's just a roll pin.
