I just removed the caps. You can also bash them down a bit.

For some strange reason I had to fit 3mm spacers on the Nova to make the front ones fit.

i first used spacers on mine, even with the grease caps off the centre caps still wouldnt sit on flush.
then when i got round to it i hacksawed about 2-3mm off the front and a bit off the back and now they sit on fine no problems
