2017 Fireblade twistgrip problems

Again in general terms on every bike I have owned the switchgear assy including the throttle mechanism although operated by cables, the switchgear casing always has a metal dowl which fits into a corresponding round hole in the handlebar. So once the switchgear casings are bolted together the dowel is located in the corresponding hole so that the switchgear and throttle cannot rotate around the bar. No matter how tight you clamp the switchgear on the bars, without the dowel and bar hole it will rotate fairly easily especially when braking or really gripping the throttle.

Is there a dowel on the switchgear? And is there a corresponding hole in the bars?
I would be very surprised if they have removed them intentionally as a design? Potentially very dangerous I would say.

I'm just doing the Krypton factor challenge of putting the twin cable throttle in place, while holding two halves of switchgear and a small white plastic cable guide and locate the dowel in the ole!!! Driving my fnuts!!!! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
