In the past when I changed grips I'd just cut them off and stick on new ones. However, this time I installing heated grips and in the summer I want to stick the non-heated ones back on. Any ideas other than spraying 40?

What did you use to put them on? Maybe you can use something that will dissolve the glue you used.

This morning I took the Hot Grips off my VFR and put them on my SV. To remove the stock SV ones I peeled them back at each end and sprayed a little WD-40 on the bar. Unpeel them back and twist the grips and they'll pull off. To keep the Hot Grips tight without any adhesvie I ran one strip of electical tape(VFR) (masking tape for the SV ) the length of the left bar only, top and bottom. The throttle side doesn't need anything. The tape adds just enough friction to keep them from spinning yet you can still pull them off easily. DON"T USE EPOXY, I think that is what Hot Grips recommends. I've never had to use grip glue or any adhesive for rubber grips. I hear hairspray works well though.

I used hairspray... the grips went on easily and after the hairspray dried they did not slip at all.

You can use compressed air to remove the stock grips. Point the air nozzle on the ends and they ballon up and come off like magic! Dunno about Hot Grips as I've never used them.
If ya need a hand let me know...I have an air compressor in the garage...

Screw the hot-grips. I'm anal and after looking at SV's set-up their is no way I can keep it as tidey as I want and still be able to remove them easly. Thanks for the offer Steve but, I think I want to save your generosity for later. Do you know how to revalve forks?

Depends on your forks. I've put in Race Tech kits but no welding damper rod holes shut and re-drilling or changing shim stacks. If you want a hand removing them to send somewhere I'd be glad to help. Turn-around time for my racebike forks used to be pretty quick...something like 2 weeks.
