if you have an air compressor and a blow gun , blow in the small hole in the end of one grip, will push the other side off, if no hole, make one, after you get one side uise a rag , wrap around blow gun to fill the space in handle bar, blow the other side off

Yep. You can put the new ones on the same way. I just had my wife hold her hand against the open side. Then I stuck the new grip on a little and blew compressed air in the new grip hole. Blew up like a balloon and slid right on. I didn't believe it was that easy until I tried it.

I worked 10 years at a bicycle shop through out high school and college. We were constantly taking grips on and off. Most of the time we used the air compressor trick but some times we came across some that were stuck and that didn't want to blow off. If you don't have an air compressor or you cant get them to blow off. Stick a small screw driver in between the bar and the grip and spray some window cleaner or some soap product down the gap made by screw driver. We would use a product called Schwinn bike polish but it was just a foaming soap product that wiped off easily. If we encountered a set that was really tough or else had been glued on we would squirt WD40 down the slot made with the screw driver. This would dissolve anything holding the grips on and you could slip them off. If you use WD40 or any other penetrating lubricant you need to clean the bars and old grips good or else the grips (either old or new) might not grip and will slip on the bars. We would install grips with the bike polish(soap product).Just spray a bunch into each grip. Slip them on and after a few minutes it would dry leaving the grips stuck to the bars. I recently installed hand warmers on both my 700 and 500. The grips blew right off and a little bit of foaming bike polish and they slipped back on over the heating elements and dried nicely.
