Sigma 8.12 Issue

I recently purchased a Sigma 8.12 and tried installing it, but the problem I am having is with the magnet and the pick-up sit to close together between the spokes and the fork. Any help on resolving this issue would be helpful.

Scootch the pickup around the back of the fork until it's got the clearance you want? Or am I misunderstanding the problem?

Position the magnet on the spoke such that it is trailing the spoke rather than pointing sideways, and/or rotate (scootch?) the sensor so that it is in front of the fork leg rather than between the fork leg and spokes. (front of the leg is better than the back)
