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.

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