Hi all. I have some aluminum mx bars and I’m thinking about installing them on my CL450K5. They are Tusk T-10 Aluminum 7/8”.
Here’s a link:

I’m just worried that drilling them for routing wiring is going to compromise them to a point that they are not safe. I don’t get too wild on the bike and if the holes are minimal and clean would they be okay? Here’s a couple of pics.

They look as if there is about 1/8” wall thickness so my guess is you could go ahead carefully, I would drill a succession of small holes and then open them up with a dremel cutting disc finishing off by relieving the holes with a chamfer. Don’t forget the hole for the locating pin either. The bar ends shouldn’t be a problem nor the Centre hole where the wires exit because it will be supported by the bar clamps.
Good luck
Nigel

I wouldn't worry about it.
