A chain saw can easily modify it, but then you'd also be moving the center of effort, the center of mass, etc. toward the rear and slightly up as well. Probably would affect pointing, stability, and then it is your gamble whether you can accept that, or fix it some other way.

The alternative would be to fill something in front, but that's going to be much more work and still may be a regret afterwards.
