I have a 7.3 with those same bars, you can't replace the grips or put bar ends on them. Trek has been promising bar ends that will fit for about a year but so far hasn't delivered. There is a thread over in Hybrids about it.

In fact you can't use much of anything standard with those bars, I had to modify a small Zefal bar end mirror to get it on mine (don't like the big Trek mirror that fits). It's a pain, I've considered changing mine, but haven't decided what to put on.
