I 100% recommend the Heed bars. I had mine on its side when putting it on the centre stand after cleaning and the bars paid for themselves there and then, saved me a fortune instead of buying new plastics. Just a couple of scuffs on the bars and a few choice words to myself.

So I found this video
Seems pretty straightforward,  where does the part about plastic plugs come into it?

The threaded holes that the mounting bolts screw into come from the factory with plastic dust covers. These need to be removed (obviously) but the message you were being given above was that its easier to screw them out than pry them out, and theres a few ways you can go about doing that. Thats all.
Ive generally used the point of a blade to push it round or a small screwdriver. Making a slot as suggested would make a relatively easy job even easier.

I installed the Outback Motortek crash bars I got over the winter last weekend.  Install was pretty straight forward although removing (and reinstalling) the upper engine through bolts is a bit of a beast.  Really happy with how they look and wrap around the bike.  And seem super beefy should do the job.
