Installing Bad Boy Horn

Installing Bad Boy Horn on my 2012 under the upper left cowl as many others have done. Fits well enough, but there are two molded tabs on the inside of the cowl that are pushing on the horn and causing my bracket to contact my gas tank. Figure if I trimmed about 3/4" off of these, it would solve my clearance issue. Planning on applying clear protective film on the tank in that area and a strip of foam on my bracket as preventative measure. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and trimmed these tabs. They don't seem to serve any purpose that I can see. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I installed my Screaming Banshee horn in there too. I simply took some pliers and yanked off those plastic tabs. I couldn't think of any reason I would need them. Horn fits in there very nicely now, granted I do have the split horn compressor is under seat, connected to horn by 3 foot hose.

Here's 2 pics of my install, showing the closed-cell-foam piece I added to the mount, and the clear-vinyl protector I put on the tank. I don't remember taking any tabs off anywhere.
