Kyle racing clip ons - looking for installation input

Hi,
Just bought Kyle racing clipons and am installing. The stock clipons have little holes drilled in them for the throttle , ignition swith and brake perch pins to keep them from rolling, the Kyle's don't. Just lookin for opinions here, obviously i need to break little pins off or drill holes, neither of which are appealing.

Has anyone ever installed these clipons and experienced "roll" of their throttle etc?

Solutions?

Feeling weary of busting off the pins, don't know why.....


Thank you!!

I took a nail and heated it to melt off the locating pins off of the switchgear. I drilled a hole for the throttle housing...you could always use hockey tape around the handle bar to keep the throttle from rotating but I would rather drill.

While I went Renthal vs some other brand - I drilled the bars. If anything happens and I want to change things up - new bars are waaaay easier/cheaper to come by than the other components. I removed the little nubs when I did this on my R1 and regret having done it.

I never messed with any changes. Drill worked for me.

I have the Kyle clip ons and shaved the location bosses off with a dremel. I have had no issues with any of the controls rotating.
