That's a personal choice, but if you decide to cut them, make sure there's enough left over to fit your controls/grip/etc.

Should I put my brake and other things on the bars without my grips on then cut them down 1inch at a time etc and use a hacksaw what about a pipe cutter ?

A pipe cutter will work, but it won't give you a flat surface. It's only something to worry about if for some reason the ends will be exposed.

You could put them on, then measure how much you have left to play with, etc. I doubt you'll have to gradually cut them, unless you want to see how they feel as you go.

I didn't use bar ends on my new bars. The new grips are closed at the end, so I just left them closed and installed.
