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.

I agree with Dave totally! All my classic bikes don't have locating pegs & I've never had any problems.

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
