    Bar end size vs handlebar size

    I ordered an inexpensive set of bar ends from one of the online stores. When I received them I thought that the hole where they fit over the handlebar end seemed a little small.

    So I checked the (minimal) packaging and found that they were 23.8mm. I didn't recall that being the dimension of my bars so I checked and they are 25.4mm.

    I never even considered that there might be different sizes. I rechecked and there wasn't any information available from where I purchased the ends.

    Is there any chance these ends will fit? The difference of 1.6mm in diameter seems minimal. I haven't taken off my grips because I don't want to foul them all up if the ends don't fit.
    Just getting started, take it easy. Thx

    Handle bars taper towards the ends. The 25.4 is the measurement at the clamp
