I've also replaced grip rubber on BMW heated grips several times over the years. I agree that the compressed air method is great on other bikes, but the glue and heating elements required careful removal by carefully slitting lengthwise with a razor blade and carefully peeling the rubber like a banana peel. Did I say that you need to be careful and not damage the heating element wires?

Going back on with rubbing alcohol (always some around the house, I'm too cheap to go buy a can of hairspray) on the heating elements and inside the grips and then allowing to dry has always served me well.
