Default Gold valve install ?

I bought the gold valve sets for the forks. In the instructions it says to drill a hole in the side of the valves for a bleed hole, my studs where the valves bolt on already have bleed holes drilled through the the stud and out the side above the valve. to drill or not to drill? any one now? week end race tech closed.

Here is a pic of the stock internals - http://mgt_sport.drivehq.com/bike/fo...artridge_3.jpg

There are 4 large holes at the bottom of the top tube in the picture.

Where are your extra holes drilled ?

sorry it took so long to get back. 1847.8 miles to somewhere cooler.
in your middle pic on the tube side there is a hole comming out the side of the 10mm hex just above the valve thats connected to the hole in the bottom of the valve where the nut holds the valve on creating a bleed hole they say to drill the extra hole in the valve i did. front end felt ok or at least did not do anything stupid. but did not ride it to hard, two up, rain and hail every afternoon.
