I know there was a topic on this before, but I couldn't find it. What is the best way to remove grips? I want them to come off clean, so they can be reattached. Is it better to use suction or glue to reattach grips? Thanks.

this has worked for me for years: to remove, i use a long skinny flat-head screwdriver and slide it in nice and deep...once you stick it in, move it from front to back while spraying wd-40, water, or hair spray in grip...(not a female :wink: ) use your other hand to twist it loose while pulling it off.
to put back on: lay bike on its side...use hair spray, or a very light film of wd-40 inside the grip and slide it on, use massive force woking it into place. if you use to much lube and grip slides on really easy, then take it off, let it dry a little then put it back on. the harder you make it to put grip on, will help decrease the chances of grip slipping when riding.

yeah thats exactly what i do but be careful with the screwdriver move it back and forth and when its as deep as possible lift it up and spray in the wd-40 or silicone or whatever and move the screwdriver all the way around the grip so the liquid gets on the entire grip and slide off then wipe it clean and do what icerocket said and put hairspray in the grip and on the bars let set for a little while and itll be ready to go in like an hour unless hairspray dries quicker

peel one end back and rub a bit of water on the bar, then pull the other end back, and rub some water on that part of the bar. then keep on moving the grip around (rotating/pulling it), add a bit more water if you need it, but it should come off on acouple of seconds, it never fails with me.
