I use standard 7/8 bars on my bikes. Take a wooden dowel, duct tape a piece of 120 grit sandpaper to it, put in drill, lap the controls inside. Perfect fit on 7/8 bars, and still fits the 22mm bars. Limited availability and styles of 22mm bars, and quad the price of 7/8.

22mm = .866 7/8 = .875

There is a difference of .009 inches, the controls are oversized by .006 - .007 inches (I measured). Therefore you only need to remove .002 - .003 inches of material from the controls.
