Maybe it's just me but, the placement of the front looks incorrect. I have always placed the shift rod behind the lever. It sits straighter, like in this picture.

Like the last few guys have stated the linkage is supposed to be on the engine side up front. If the bolt touches the cylinder fins on the up shift just loosen the lock nuts at each end of the linkage and rotate it in the direction that lengthens it (makes the threaded parts longer) and this will move the front lever forward a bit and should give you the clearance you need. Then you may need to re-adjust you toe shift lever if it brings it down too much.

well, i went by the 2013 fltrxse2 parts manual, which is where i got my shifter from, and it shows the linkage on the outside.

checking the 2019 cvo road glide custom, it also has the linkage on the outside.

it's cut off on the screen captures, but i think we can all agree that it is on the outside on the rear linkage....

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Did it come with instructions?

These instructions don't look like what you did.

I just went to the HD website and clicked on Shop for the Bike and looked up shift linkage for a 2010 and you can scroll down on the page and click on guide and then installation instructions and there it shows it on the inside. Must have been changed somewhere along the line. Most likely will work either way but it is more in line if it is installed on the inside up front.

Nope. The instructions that come with says it will, but the head of the supplied bolt disagrees. It jams against the cooling fins.
