I had the same issue - I found it very difficult to get the default black foam "olive" tip off. All I can say is that I did it very carefully. Made sure that I got under the center plastic tube and slowly worked the tip off of the nozzle. The silicone tips were much easier to put on/take off again. I tried comply TS100 tips that I had for other IEM's (similar to the Shure olive's) and they were much easier to put on - and I think I experience better sound with them.
