i'm planning on ditching my current handlebar, though i do think it's great, it's a bit chunky (Kore Lite Riser xc, 220g).

it's 25 inches wide and i'm exploring the possibility of going to a 23 inch flat bar. i also like to use bar ends. would it be utter disaster to narrow my grip that much, especially considering the possibility of using bar ends as well? the gram savings would be good though ~ 80 grams for 40 buckaroos.

I run my bars at about 22 inches or so. I have been told that the min you should use is the width of your shoulders. I think maybe that plus a little. I doubt you would have a problem.
