So who has fitted these and how? I recently ordered a set and they don't seem to fit on the bike for crap. The instructions said to bolt them straight in w/o the stock bar internals and no end weights, but I'm not drilling out stock bar internals (I shouldn't have to). They were an easy, no modification bolt-on when I had them on my CB500X.
I tried some longer bolts and put my bar-ends on the outside, but that still twisted them a lot. I tried straight bolting them w/o the bar ends then they didn't line up with my handle bars at all. I would have had to twist them quite a bit to get them to line up.
So, I KNOW some of you folks have them, since they are a popular, and good, bit of kit. How did you fit them?
I have a Gen2 by the way.
Edit: it seems the biggest issue is the front brake master cylinder line. It just will not line up with that in the way.
