Default Handlebar issues

Ok, I looked for days to find the bars I wanted and ordered them. What I overlooked was the bars are for a Harley which uses a 1/2 bolt. My bike is a 10mm bolt. Without drilling out the triple clamps, what can I do or what have you done? Kirk has an adaptor mount kit but from what I can tell in the description its only 30mm long. My clamp is 40mm. I also don't want to return the bars. Someone here has had to have done this already?

What diameter are the bars? Could you put the new bars on the stock risers?

I don't have risers. I ended up drilling the tripple clamp.

How difficult was that to do? And how do you like the bars?

I do this with my phone mostly so haven't figured out pictures yet
