Believe so, gives something solid for the collar to clamp down onto.

No to cut it i had to cut the original tabs off that the collar sits on and its unlikely that you will be able to recreate this perfectly. Most also have a lip or divot which the collar sits on.

...were yours dual clamp ones?

It appears DMR and Specialized do some single clamp versions, which i guess would work well, as they are intended to be run with a single clamp.

A good point that i forgot to mention: Do Standard & Oversize MTB bars share the same grip size? ...is it just the clamp size that's different?
