Default Swappin grips, need some "help"!

So I bought some new grips. Before they arrive, I thought I'd lean on you experts for some tips on how you took off your factory grips.
Thoughts, tips or tricks on the best/easiest way to take off the factory grips and free them of the glue and goo?

Thanks,

P.S. Thanks for the pointers on the exhaust install this weekend! Went smooth as silk!

Mine just pulled right off. I started from the far end and pulled it over itself. Then for the new one I used a soap water and rubbing alcohol mix then pushed it right on. I took alittle work to get them on but its not too bad. I didn't even remove my bar ends. Then give it like a day to sit and dry out. I didn't use glue bc I read its not really needed and Ive havent had any problems

Compressed air! Stick a nozzle on the end of the grip, it'll push air in between the bar and the grip and make it very easy to slide on and off.
