Hold the fort...
Let's look at this a little closer...
This looks to me like you have mounted the wrong-hand bracket and caliper on the wrong side. This correction would put the caliper on the rear side of the wheel and your brake hose length wouldn't be so tight.

What ABS kit number is this? BTW, I have never advocated for using ABS spindle hardware.

Personally, I don't like using residual valves. Your M/C is mounted above the wheels so you don't need one. If you're worried about rear shoe wear, install self-adjusting kits for 11" brakes. A residual valve on the rear shoes will only keep the wheel cylinder pistons out and you won't know when the brakes need adjusting. This is important. A self-adjuster will actually turn the star wheel, which is what you want.
