Question Help! Handguards!

I got my ACREBIS rally pro II guards in today, and am having a hard time fitting them. I got the left side (clutch side) on just fine, however the right side is an issue. It seems that the metal brake line coming out of the brake fluid resevoir is in my way. Has anyone else ran across this issue? What did you do to resolve it? I'm trying to take a 400+ mile trip in the morrow, and really want to have these on by then.

Depending on the nature of the obstruction, you might try rotating the brake line a bit. You can loosen the bolt holding the brake line just a touch and rotate the line. I'm sure a little air gets into the system when you do this, but probably not much.

I've done this on mine, but if someone knows of a reason why it's a bad idea, please chime in. I'm sure the small change in routing is no problem. The only potential issue I see is that little bit of air ingress.
