Default Excel rim on an '02: Will spokes clear the caliper?

I bought a 40 spoke 19x2.5 dyna/sportster wheel awhile ago. I was wondering if the spokes will clear my OEM '02 4 piston caliper? the caliper looks tight even with the mag on there. Keep in mind the 19x2.5 excel does not have the drop shoulder or whatever it is called in the center of the rim.

Link to thread on "Harley Racing" events across the country:

These events include Hillclimbing, Flat Track Racing, Ice racing, Drag Racing, etc.. They are all sports dominated by Harley Davidsons. They are always located in scenic areas and are great weekend rides. The above link allows XLforum users to coordinate riding to these events together.
