No. They make cross levers with 3 different clamp diameters, as follows:
RL720 = 24.0mm for normal road bar
RL726 = 26.0mm for clamping area
RL721 = 31.8mm for clamping area
Anyway, if you get the RL726 levers with the 26.0mm clamp, the shim only has to be 0.3mm thick or about 12mils. So I think a few turns of electrical tape would work, given that there is no twisting of the lever on the bar when it is operated. You can buy metal shims, but they are super expensive and unnecessary IMO.
