    How to remove non-lock on grips

    Looking to get the Sensus/ODI collabo grips, but they are not lock on so they will have to be glued. I have always ran lock-ons so what is the best way to remove glued grips without destroying the finish etc on your bars

    If you have an air compressor blast air into it. They usually slide right off.

    If you want to save the grip, poke a flathead screwdriver into the grip and shoot some Windex in....should slide right off.....

    Or, as said, air if you have a compressor....

    Or knife as last resort.

    I've always used a spray bottle filled with water and a long, slim flat head screw driver to remove grips, but those are grips with ends, non-lock. Just lift off a bit with the screw driver, blast some water, lift further, add water, and work your way. But the air compressor idea is looking good too.

    I have those grips (Sensus Swayze's) and they rock! I used and air compressor on one set, but before i got that idea i just used water and soap in a spray bottle, sprayed the end of the bars, slid it on, and let it set.

    i have used lynx, (axe) deodourant to get them off in the past,,,
    as the others have said, use somthing like a flat head screwdriver to lift the end of the grip up, give it a good spray, then pull and twist,,,,,,

    also when fitting new grips, another tip is to use hairspray,,, this helps them go on easy and makes them stick when they are inplace.....

    lift the grip from the bars by using a flat head screwdriver > spray some lubricating water & soap or oil or wd40 (i'm sure somebody will tell me that wd40 is not used for lubrication) > slide off grip and you're done!

    WD-40 isn't for lubrication.

    The nice thing about Windex (or some related item) versus H2O/soap is the windex dries/evaporates quickly so your grips aren't slipping around for that ride immediately after changing them!

    Consequences dictate our course of action and it doesn't matter what's right. It's only wrong if you get caught.
