@Windblown re: your first photo showing the rear brake lines, which I assume are stainless. Have you checked to ensure those lines don't hit anything at full upward range of the swingarm? I'm thinking about switching to stainless brake lines so curious about that. Thx for feedback.

Good eye. It looked close to me too so I checked it out as I was installing, and it is close with the swingarm fully compressed, but it doesn't hit.  There's some room to pivot the fitting forward or backward to buy a little more room but since it cleared where it was I left it for now. I'll take another look when I mount up a high exhaust.
