I need some tips for removing ame unitron grips from handlebars.

can anyone please give me some tips on removing ame unitron grips from bars without damaging them? I'm asking since their made of a much harder rubber compound then most other grips, I don't want to use my usual method of a flathead screwdriver with dish soap since I don't want any damage on the grips.

That's a good idea but I don't have access to a air compressor.

WD40 nozzle squirt a bit and twist away.   Afterwards wash off the WD with soap and water.
