I can't think of anything you did wrong. May be the bars are tapered down smaller than 1". That would cause the problem and would be a manufacturer mistake.

On some of the grips, the ends go inside the cutout for the switch housings, did you verify this.....?

That's all I can think of.........

Not sure this helps but maybe call the bar manufacturer & ask what gives?

Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
