Default 5008MGA blade guard can't retract with fin?

I recently received my 5008MGA with the base pre-attached, but I'm having some troubles getting the blade guard to retract with the anti-kickback fin in place. Is there some trick to this? I notched out enough space for it to retract, but now the fin flops out and I'm not sure if I should be gluing it in.

On my 7" Makita hypoid I didn't have this problem... is there a shorter version available for larger saws or some other thing I need to do?
