Captive caliper and chain guard interference

After making a captive caliper setup for my '12 D675 I noticed that the chain guard gets in the way of a tire swap. I know you could just remove the guard, but I prefer keeping on to help keep lube from flinging everywhere. It looks like trimming might be the only solution. My guard is a carbon fiber and I only want to cut only as much as needed. Don't have an OEM one to experiment with.

So I'm wondering if anyone else has pics of how far they have trimmed theirs down or if anyone has come up with a quick-disconnect solution? Or maybe there's some other trick to prevent issues with the swap.

Yes I could easily just buy a guard on ebay to play with - just figured i'd ask around first. :)

The plastic guard flexes just enough for the wheel to slide out easily with a captive caliper.
