Mounting a superbike tail?

Alright so I feel like a dumb ass for even asking this. But I've got an 08 r6 and I've got an armour bodies body for it. The tail is a superbike tail and I can't get it past those wing things that mount to the sub frame. The fiberglass is probably a little less flexible than normal because it's winter time but aside from that I just don't see how it would fit over it.

You're actually supposed to cut those wings or just remove them all together.

Ok that's what I thought too. But if I remove them then where would the tail mount to? It has two mounting bolts in it. So I'll just cut the ends off then. Time for a grinder party lol
