I have some bars with the left hand side grip I need to remove. It's a Performance Machine Renthal grip and I was wondering what is the easiest way to remove it. Not really much room to stick anything between bars and grip.

If you warm it up a bit, can you get it to twist to break loose and adhesive?? Other thing you can do is remove the right grip, plug any wire holes or cover with duct tape and blow air in from that side. Should expand the grip enough to get it to slide off, if it doesn't blow off.

I've used a strap wrench to break any glue seal.

Good Luck

Whether it was right or wrong Fletch, the last set of grips I replaced I had to cut off with a box knife and dermmal tool.

There is probably a better way but I don't know it.
