Reverse the procedure to install a grip. Squirt a little WD into the grip and slide it on the handlebar. In minutes the grip will be as secure as if you'd used superglue.

My trick also..........good ole Water - Dispersant that they got right on the -40th try works great..... for many things accept a lubricant.

Good tip Tom
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
