Default Re: Throttle Mounting: Hole or No Hole?

I've always drilled. It in no way compromises the strength of the handlebars and assures that the twist grip stays put. Relying on the plastic and clamping action is not the best idea. It will eventually loosen.
I've heard of people wrapping the bar with tape, sandpaper and even, heaven forbid, using JB Weld to keep the twist grip in place.
Drill the bar.
