For bar end extensions, buy ones that clamp over the outside of the bar, since this dimension is standard. For plugs, many of the expandable types are smaller, you just have to search trial and error. Start with the plastic types since these tend to be smaller than the rubber ones.
Alternatively, if you're using closed end grips, skip the bar end, and drop a nickel into the grip. This will very effectively cap the bar and keep it from cutting through, and I don't of any bar ends that can be bought for $0.10 a pair.
