This doesn't look right and it seems that the foot brake arm would now be the lowest part on that side of the bike and the most likely to touch the ground first when heeled over in a tight turn.

Is this the way it's supposed to be? Or did I end up with the wrong part or something?
Thr picture on the Touratech site looks like it goes over the peg:
