Grip Glue Cleaner?

All,

I installed the factory heated grip kit on my Versys a couple weeks ago and used standard grip glue - seemed to hold ok but did a ride yesterday with the heaters on high for about 1.5 hrs and noticed that my throttle grip was rotating on the throttle sleeve. The factory kit has the heater element in the grip so I need to reuse it and wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a cleaner spray/solution to help clean the old glue out of the grip before reinstalling. My biggest concern is finding something that will get rid of the old glue but not be detrimental to the rubber grip.

I plan to use Koso heated grip glue this time - never used it before but it's available through Parts Unlimited - supposed to be good for almost 300 degrees. Thanks in advance.
