Re: your new bars
I thought the stock bars were too swept back and needed to be straighter. Your new ones are approaching cruiser bike territory.
I tried drilling. There was a 1/4" thick washer tack welded in the end with some kind of bar stock behind it. I got tired of drilling and quit since I knew I wanted taller bars anyway.

I think the photo is misleading. Those bars have the exact same sweep and width as the stockers. They're just 1.5" taller.
