I haven't changed my grips yet as I haven't felt the need for it. But I suppose you would have to either go with someone bigger with more rubber, might help with it, or go with such foam covers that you can thread on the outside of the grips.
I've seen some videos of people removing old grips by simply using air pressure. Put the nozzle against the end of the grip (the grips has to be the "closed" type, it can't be open, otherwise the pressure won't do any good) and simply shoot air into it, forcing it to loosen from the handlebar. You should be able to do that with the stock ones, might have to make a little hole at the end for the air to flow through though.
Otherwise there are these release agents that Twizz speaks off. Just make sure to clean the grips really good afterwards, so that the grips will glue back on properly.
Edit: Forgot to say, I believe there is some sort of special glue designed for this, so I'm not sure if "anything goes" here. But if you do end up getting new grips, then most shops should be able to provide the glue needed for fastening them.
