Sorry for the bad information.
I just swapped my bad stock one for the cheaper 10.5 Magura this winter. I dug through the HOW and ADVRIDER before I did it, but I couldn't find anything about it not clearing the switch pod. I probably missed that information.
It went on just fine and it bled just fine and I got it working. I did it really quick because I work outside and it is cold. I didn't pay too much attention when I put it on. Just get it done and get inside before your hands freeze solid.
I got a PM this week asking about it hitting so I went out to the garage and played with it.
Your right. It does hit the stock switch pod when you pull the lever
. It is extremely close.
It is installed now and it isn't leaking at the moment, so for me that is a step in the right direction. Better than the puddle of fluid on the floor. As soon as it warms up, I need to look at it some more.

As mentioned before, the standard Magura units do not clear the left-hand switch pod. I was lucky enough to find a good used stock unit when my original went bad (and returned the standard I had just received). When the replacement goes bad, I will likely get a standard AND then have to replace the switch pod as well.
