Help to identify this brand of ABS system

Hello, I am in the process of replacing my brake lines on my 09 Road King Classic and I don't know what brand my current front brake manifold is.

Can anyone ID this as I don't think it is OEM for this model bike? Picture#1

Also, I am trying to figure out which way this magnum shielding lower brake assembly gets connected, there are two ways it COULD be mounted and I don't want to stuff it (no instructions provided).

Check out the photo's as I am 90 percent sure that the upright cable picture 4&5 below goes up through the rightside of headlight nacelle back to the ABS controller (run down the right side of the bike under the tank).

Any advice on problems experienced with installing this setup?

Thanks,

They look like Russell lines. Russell lines usually have a name tag wrapped around the lines someplace.

ABS braided cable problem

Thanks Schmidys.... don't the Russell lines have screw in banjo or an3 fittings? I don't think this is the case with this current setup (not to question your judgement but I am confused!).

Attached are some clearer photo's, I am getting quite frustrated as the bike is off the road and I am trying to ID this brand of manifold so I can replace the lower cables to the calipers and the mid line. I can't find the correct type of chrome braided hose and fittings that will be plug and play. Check out the photo #1 and 2.

I ordered the magnumshielding lower assy but it rises behind the triple tree and gets pushed against the frame in front of the tank. I don't trust this set up as it may weaken the braised connection where the mid line hose (to BCU) attaches to the manifold under the triple tree (solid tubing). See picture #3.

I have tried to research further but with no luck - Surely someone may have this set up and can offer some additional advice! I am going nuts...

Are you sure you're installing the new manifold correctly ? I've never seen one that routes the upper line behind the triple tree bottom clamp. It should route up between the front of the bottom clamp and the nacelle and the hose would exit the top of the nacelle next to the right handlebar clamp then to the master cylinder.

Looking at the bottom picture of the new maniflod it looks like that would work.
