Check the depth of the grips to the gap between the controls and end of bar, I believe the controls are pinned in place by seeing a photo of a disassembled one. If the grips are closed end and you want to keep the end caps, you can dremel out the grip ends, I've done it on soft Biltwell grips.

I have them  but on aftermarket bars. 
Bear in mind that you'll probably want to shorten the throttle tube as it's longer than the grip if you want a neat look.
I haven't got around to that yet but will eventually.
