Oury "Lock On" Grips - can you switch the rubber portion?

Has anyone tried to swap the grip portion to another color? I'm interested in buying a pair of black "lock on" grips, removing the black rubber, and installing my preferred color from a set of "normal" grips. I understand that rubber portion of the donor grips may be sacrificial. Any insight would be appreciated.

edit: 500th post, and it's about grip colors, lol.

Oury has different color lock on grips and you can even get the ODI locking clamps in different colors. No need to cut up old grips or anything like that.
