I found my old grip and had a quick measure.
One is 25mm and the other is either 21 or 22 - I measure at 21.5mm

Hope that helps

Cheers

A few causes for vibration, un-balanced carbs and wheels, wheel bearings, Long distance rides shouldn't end in numb hands

Not relaxing, gripping too hard, poor posture, levers in a less than comfy position could possibly be causing this too.

Good luck.
