i just got my renthal ultra low bars in and am going
to swap them over today. but the stock bars have holes
in them for the nubs on the handlebar control housings.
do i drill out the renthals or grind off the nubs???
i'm inclined to grind off the nubs but am afraid of the
housings spinning on the handlebars.
how have some of you guys done it? and with what results?

Sorry if this is a repeated question (I'm sure it is) What headlight/fairing is that? Will it accommodate the stock instruments?

Grind the nubs. Renthals specificly advices agains any drilling of the bars to prevent fatigue cracks from starting from the holes.

Have had the Ultra Lows on for 2 years + and the controls have not moved at all.
