3 possible fixes.
1) Replace the entire thing as dealer suggested. Very expensive and the grip will just split again. Would only do this if the heating element is broken on one or the other.
If the heating elements are still working:
2) Tape using tennis handle tape. Works really well and provides for a larger more comfortable grip. Replace annually or as needed.
3) Cut off the rubber part as mentioned above, being careful not to damage the heating element. Slip a replacement grip over the bar. If you buy after market ones, you'll need to buy 2 sets and use the larger right grip on both sides (if they are logo'd then the left one will be upside down). If you don't glue them, they can slide off over time.
