Take the grip off and then take the cable connecting it off.

Not sure if it will work for bike grips but when putting on golf club grips they use lighter fluid.

Hey check under your throttle tube to see if maybe you got some glue in there.

Maybe try sticking that grip on the throttle tube, wipe off any excess, then allow to dry before reinstalling the assembly back onto the clip on. Seems like an awful lot of trouble for a grip replacement though.

Disclaimer: I just came up with this from the comfort of my bed. May or may not be a good idea.

OR just try it again and maybe have someone hold your purse so you can put two hands on that ....just sayin.

FWIW I've installed a couple billion grips in my life and it really depends on the
brand. Factory/stock are generaly more expensiev but last the longest. Also I
have almost never had to use glue with factory Honda and Yamidog grips. They
are so thick and tough that a little alcohol always worked fine.

Renthal are the tackiest and while I always used them on race scooters I always
used safty wire with them. The glue would always break loose at the most
inoppertune times...
