Adding css to ion-nav-title

When I use ion-nav-title in a sub page that has a ion-nav-back-button in it, the ion-nav-title gets an automatic style=“left: 53px; right: 53px” added to it. How can I override these settings - its driving me nuts trying to reduce the left/right margins.

<ion-nav-title>

adds the following to the rendered code.

<div class="title title-center header-item" style="left: 53px; right: 53px;"><span left="30px;" style="left:30px;" class="nav-bar-title">
    <img class="whipsterIcon" ng-src="img/whipsterIcon.png" src="img/whipsterIcon.png">
    <span class="whipsterTitle">
      POLICIES
    </span>
  </span></div>
