Why not! It's not like you are going to ruin a big-dollar part.
Try shaving the rear towers down as much as possible without touching the pump. You might need to clearance the ribs inside the plate.
Expect it to be much bouncier.

You want to grind enough and still slip a peice of paper between the pump and plate.
If you are unsure, Jim's Performance specializes in rideplates as well.
