I have those bars and did the swap, it's very easy. Just gotta be careful when drilling the holes in the new bars......measure thrice drill once. I'm very happy with the bars, fashion and function.

The stock handle bars have holes predrilled in them for the the tabs in the throttle tube and blinker assembly. I just cut off the tabs.

The trick I used was put the control pod on as best you can and get it in the right position for your feel (don't got too far forward on the throttle side, your brake lever still has to fit under the throttle cables).

Once you have it in place, pull the bottom plate off, the one with the pin. Keep the top in place and don't move it!

Put a dab of water or spit on the pin, then put it back in place. Wherever it touches the bars, you'll now have a dab of water/spit right where you want to drill. Grab a pencil or whatever and mark that spot. Then drill.

This is what I did and it was spot on, both sides. Plus, no movement.
