13.08mm Canyon guides

I ordered canyon guides before I removed my old ones thinking they would fit fine. As it turns out all my guide bores are in good shape (not enlarged) and the interference fit with the new canyon guides would be in the range of .0032-.0035". Probably just on the tight side of what the bentley manual says, which is already more interference fit that what Wayne's book says at .060mm (.0024")

Is that asking for trouble or should I definitely machine the guides down .001"?

Seems strange to me that Canyon sells these as standard guides, why don't they make them 13.06 to match the factory guide size?

Thanks in advance! Jon
