I've got a similar situation, but I wouldn't do it (26.0 bar in a 25.4 stem)
stress concentration due to point contact,
plastic deformation, the smaller clamp will want to crush the bar
It just does not fit!
It is like a pair of shoes. If the shoe is slightly big, you can walk around in them and it should be ok,
if you want a snug fit, wear a thicker pair of socks. If the shoe is slightly small, it will hurt...every moment!
