Pinned switches?

Who do you suppose had the brilliant (sarcasm) idea to pin the switch blocks and levers to the handlebars? And in the wrong place at that-- I have to take my hand off the grip to cancel turns or switch beams. Riders should be able to adjust the controls to their liking. Must have been the same guy that thought inboard mirrors were a 'good' idea...

They are positioned fairly well for me... I can hit them both with my thumb pretty easily. Never a bad idea to make something adjustable though...

More work ahead

I too elongated a hole. Now every time I change oil (2500mi) I have to pull off the switch cluster and check the bars for cracks.
