Which grips to upgrade to?

I'm about to upgrade my handlebar to a Pro Taper Evo Adventure 1-1/8" bar and am trying to decide on the grips to upgrade to. Any suggestions?

That's the route I want to go but I don't see any in a 1-1/8" size? All I find are 7/8". Any suggestions?

txox4,
Only the bar clamp mounting area is 1-1/8th". The control and grip area is 7/8th". Otherwise, none of our controls would fit.

Well, that would just make too much sense, right?

Thanks for the clarification. Indeed, I'm a moron.
