sometimes a small screwdriver can be forced between the grip and bar to break loose the glue and work around the bar, or if you have an air compressor, and can get a jet of air underneath. I put heated grips on mine last winter, spent a few minutes trying to save them, but gave up and just cut them off. Grips are pretty inexpensive to replace if you damage them.
Which bar ? will you need new brake line or throttle/clutch cables? I'm thinking of new bars or risers, but don't know if the '12 650 has enough slack in those lines.
