Normally they just slide off easily. I'm assuming you have removed collets and springs and they are stuck?

You could carefully try and pry them off with pliers/multigrips making sure you don't scuff the valve stems. A bit of carby cleaner or any other solvent would help dissolve any oil varnish/gum.

cheers
Scott
