Yes I had this issue when I purchased my bike a year ago with apes fitted.
I ended up replacing the pinned risers (and actually turning them around) with the stock ones. The dealership said they could 'not' do this as it was a safety issue.
This was the first time I had ever heard of 'pinned' risers, despite having ridden with apes for decades. I once had a bad accident where I was thrown forward into my apes which gave way under the force. The thought of riding with fixed/pinned apes scared the **** out of me, so I swapped them back to 'un' pinned ones immediately with NO issues at all.
Just my view.
