Stock Tiger Bar End inserts...

Last night I installed HDB handguards, Top Clamp and mirrors on my XC, but I ended up installing with the stock bar-end bolts and the factory inserts as opposed to tapping and using the supplied HDB inserts and bolts. The stock bolts are a little smaller but are countersunk type and worked fine. It wasn't obvious how the stock inserts might be removed...anyone been through this and have a clue?

Overall, it seems a rock solid setup, highly recommended. I do have one thought, the shields are very flat, vertically, I'm thinking of heating them with a heat gun and seeing if I might not be able to angle the top lip back a bit, I'd think it would cause smoother airflow over hands and lower arms.
