there seems to be a a high edge at the end of the right hand bar , does the new oxford grip go over this or does it need grinding off

You need to sand it down gently. I have a thread somewhere with pics let me see if I can find it.

Yes you will have to remove that high edge on the right hand bar ,I found the easy way was to
trim it off with a stanley / craft knife and then sand the high bits down. On mine there was also
some what I can only describe as raised vein's that may or not need to be removed .
There was also on mine an inner high edge that was exposed after removing the old grip and you can either remove that one as well or simply butt your new grip up to it in which case you will have to
trim some off the length of the new grip
