Default Heelcup on Ride Delta's a bit tight

I went out yesterday, first time on new bindings, and I love em. I only have one issue, the right heelcup is really tight, I have to kick my boot into it pretty hard. Left one doesn't seem to be quite as hard, but that could be because I'm sitting down when I strap that one in. Can I spread the heelcup/frame by just a bit, like maybe a 1/16th or 1/8th of an inch to make getting my boot in a little easier? Or is tweaking the heelcup/frame not a good idea? Anyone else have an issue with this? It's really no big deal, but it would be nice to just step into them rather then kick in hard.

The specs. '09 Ride Delta size 11-13, '07 Vans high standard boots size 13.

...or you could try to sit down when you strap that one in to? maybe your boots are fat. are they gonna wear out anytime soon? if they are look into replacing them with some smaller profile ones.

If I do replace my boots it won't be till next season if even then. I don't think they will wear out anytime soon, and I really like these boots, fit me great. I'm wondering if rather then tweaking the bindings, could I maybe file a bit of the rubber off the back of my boot? I was just looking at my boots, and there is noticable scuffing on the right heel with hardly any on the left?
