I can't see drilling a small hole for a locating pin being a problem, I've done both methods you mention without problems  Switchgear locating pegs. 3498837457 did you fit renthals on the bandit?

Well actually I got some lower chrome bars, cut of the pegs as above, fitted everything on, decided I did not like the position, took them back and got a refund saying they did not fit my bike! Switchgear locating pegs. 2516569736 . Renthals would be nice mind.

File off the locating tabs, never known there be an issue before. Much easier than drilling two holes in the tight places.

Filed the pegs off mine - the problem is if you drill a locating hole, then decide that you want to change the positioning of the bars, you're stuck with the switchgear in the original position.  When I swapped onto flat drags, I found that I altered the angle of the bars a few times before I was comfortable
