I just want to check on the best way of removing the stock grips on my hybrid as I want to fit new ones. From what I've been able to gather so far, the procedure is as follows:

1. Lift up an open end of a grip and squirt a bit of Isopropyl Alcohol down it;

2. Twist the grip off (it should twist off a bit easier due to the IPA);

3. Loosen brake lever and gear-shift levers if necessary;

4. Clean exposed handlebar thoroughly;

5. Twist on new grip (using a small amount of IPA as a lube if required) and position/tighten as required;

6. Fix on end caps;

7. Reposition loosened levers and tighten.

Does that sound about right?
