poke a thin screwdriver down between the grip and the bar and spray in wd40

use wd40 for refitting too!

I poke a spare spoke carefully down the grip, lift it a bit and spray WD-40, then PULL.

yep i use the old poke trick, but i find a drop of wasing up liquid better.
and it washes out easier after..

the best thing for putting new grips back on is hair spray, drys like glue

wd40 is a moisture displacer and disappears completely

Boil the kettle, put on rubber gloves, fill a jug, lean the bike into the jug, leave it there for 20 seconds, give them a tug (easy for the average bloke) voila, one pair of undamaged grips.

And you can ride straight away cos of no oily slippery stuff!
