That would mean handlebars are 1/4" wall thickness? Sorry. Your calculations are way off, sir.

1/8" difference will never be enough to impact the way your little engine will perform. I promise you. Use the 7/8" handlebar material. It is probably already chrome plated so your exhaust system will look good and work just fine.
