How to make a hole through a rounded surface?

To replace a stock handlebar with a new one, you will need to drill new holes into the new handlebar.

There are always holes into stock bars to keep the controls from twisting. Control assemblies have tabs that fit in the holes. It’s very difficult to make a hole through a rounded surface, the drill bit or the handlebar itself will wander away easily. You can try to make a punch mark first so the drill bit will not get so far away. But the handlebar will roll away from you still, it will be frustrating if you try to hold the handlebar in place.

You can use a V-block or a bench vise to help you finish this job. Or you can try KiWAV handlebar drill tool.
