Drilling holes for aftermarket clip-ons? - November 6, 2007, 09:10 AM

Hey everyone. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice for installing clip-ons? I lowsided and decided to replace my stock clip-ons with ones that were easier to replace if they got damaged in another wreck(or so I thought). Low and behold I found out that the Vortex clip-ons I bought don't have risers and that I need to drill my own holes. Would it be easier just to buy OEM clip-ons? I tried to drill my own holes but that didn't work out so well. Any help would really be appreciated.

?? The vortex clip ons I've used before have been a bolt on deal. Are you sure you ordered the right model/year for your bike?

yes I'm positive. I guess I should've been more specific with my question - the holes I'm trying to drill are for the "nubs" on the highbeam/turn signal cluster and kill switch/starter that go into the actual bar portion....if that makes sense.

Here's the hole on the OEM clip-on
