Well, I installed Cycra Pro Bend with the U clamp and I wish I had replaced the handlebars, had I known about this.. It's a major PITA to drill through it, I would change the bars in a heartbeat next time, so yes, he's not bs'ing you, changing them out, is a lot easier than drilling through the ends. Oh, and by the time I drilled through, the bars were so hot that they melted the glue holding the grips in place, so I had to replace those too.
