It doesn't sound as if your bar came with instructions, and you really need them else it can prove to be difficult to figure out. Just from appearance, if that bar is the correct one it looks like it has to fit behind your radiator--I haven't seen that done. I hope someone else can/will tell you what you need to do.
Question: Does that "L" bracket at the top center of your bar come loose and reverse positon, so that it will fit over your radiator? I'm just guessin' now.
The bars on your old '06 look like they attached to U-bolts that were bolted up to the frame, in two pieces.
The easiest way to realign the brake side pedal is to muscle it in position so that you can get the top bolt back in; then, using that as a fulcrum point, with a rubber handled hammer or similar push the rest of the pedal unit into alignment so that the second bolt hole is back where it belongs.
This is where you need the second person. Holding the pedal in position, push your bolt through into the hole on the bike and manually turn to be sure the threads are aligned and tighten. It's a bitch.
It's not the bike; it's the rider.
