If there is a hole in one of the grips on the end, put an air compresser nozzle in the hole and giver. Sould take the grip off nicely.

just run a knife down the middle,not going all the way through, and the go all the way through at the end where a hook would go, grab a pliers and peel the whole thing off, works perfect, I have done 3 sleds this way and never had a problem.

I have removed the grips and reinstalled them with compressed air as mentioned above.

For the heaters, I have used a hair dryer and a dull knife to gently peel the handwarmers off. Then re-attach them with some 3M spray adhesive.

Also, I posted this a few years ago:

I used a hairdryer to heat the grips. It takes a while. Figure out a way to set up the hairdryer to blow on the grip and find something else to do for 5 to 10 minutes. When the grip gets good and hot, grab the inside edge and pull it off. It may take a few tries, but be patient and don't get rammy. Once the grips are off, the warmer is a tape-like thing that is glued to the bar. It helps to heat that up to loosen the glue. Then take a knife or something with a somewhat sharp tip and peel the warmer off the bar. Just like skinning a deer. Be careful not to cut the warmer. If you cut the warming element, it is junk. Go slow. Good luck.
