i recently changed my grips and found it pretty tough to save the clutch hand stock grip it is glued on with a heavy adhesive and it is a 3 peice unit, i didn't plan on reuseing my stock grips sp i didn't mind breaking anything and although i didn't try i still split my bar end cap. what i think would work is you get a screwdriver under the grip and fold it over as far as you can a use a large flat ended punch and slowly work it off they pull off the grip and slowly work off the other end of the grip. once you've done this its a matter of four screws two on each lever set and two on each bar control unit. you can either loosen them or completely take them apart i found it easier to take them toally apart, (which only consists of the shell that houses them) slide them off them remove your bars by removing two large nuts from the end of your stock bars and but your new ones in. hope this was helpful although it was typed very hastily, any other questions post and we'll do our best to help you out.

You can try using a hair dryer to heat the adhesive on the clutch grip but I've never had luck with it. More than likely you will have to replace it.

07ACE has given you the best advice.

good luck let us know
Did it with your help
The only hard bit was to drill the bars to take the switch gear locating pins(took me a few moments to work out why the controlls wouldnt close up together again)
The only damage was one of the plastic bar ends craked as it came out ....the other was ok,cant imagine they are to pricey as they are only chromed plastic.
Thanks again and im of for a ride before they grit and rod salt the roads!:D
