    are you still working on this ? there are two screws holding the left grip, don't believe they are glued.
    I just bought a MTS950 my self with no heated grips, I need to install them and I've the installation booklet.

    Hey, thanks for the reply, I was beginning to give up hope! No I havenít started yet as Iíve been busy. The reason I want to remove the bars is to get them, and the clamp, powder coated satin black so itís not urgent.
    I thought I could see a screw just under the grip, what about the throttle side? The other thing Iím concerned about is the power cable. I suppose Iím going to have to take the plunge and remove some paneling! Anyway, thanks for the info. Thanks

    at the left handlebar, is held by two screws @ 2.8Nm +/- 5% the outer screw is 10Nm
    the right/throttle controller grip is held by a few more screws @ 1.5 Nm -/+ 10% and outer screw 10 Nm
    .
    again, I'm not a Ducati mechanic I'm just reading it from the heated grips installation booklet provided by Ducati.
