    Sometimes if you can fit a screw driver (small flat type) under it and spray soapy water and gently work your way around it should come off.
    For the love of the bikes

    Put an crescent wrench opened up just a little bit larger than the bar against the grips. Tap on the side of the crescent wrench and the grip should come off. I have done this many times and they always come off.

    The bike shop boys use compressed air. It takes about one second.
