Bikes: schwinn ranger (women's) that i've upgraded the tire, seat, rack, attempting the grips (doesn't seem like it would be that hard right...)

dept. store bike (turn away now if you're offended!)...changing twist shift grips.
ok so i have this schwinn ranger (info here: http://www.target.com/gp/detail-tab-...ditionalImages
) which i have no defense for...i was doing some shopping at target, wanted a bike, got a bike. done. bad decision? probably. but it's mine and i own it like i owned my first 1989 oldsmobile cutlass cierra (both equally heavy, steel rigs).
so it's a couple of years later, and i start riding longer distances, like 50 mile rides on the weekends when i'm not using this to cut the car out during the week. first i replaced the slow arse stubby tires with some cool semi-slick ones. then i got a rack. and now i actually like the bike. but anyway i dunno why i felt the need to give a history...my problem today is i got these specialized ergonomic bike grips meant for twist shift bikes, and they're too big. so the question is: can i move the grip shift itself down the handlebars a bit so i can fit these grips? or will i mess up the bike?
