Mine actually removed quite easily while I sat in traffic one day with no mess. But if yours are a little more stubborn try running over to Canadian Tire and grab a product called GooGone. Others have mentioned it works well.
I just took all of mine off and it took less than 5 minutes and they all peeled of with no fuss at all. Take a hair dryer on low setting and high air speed and gently heat up a sticker then gently peel it off while continuing to heat it. Repeat for each sticker. Worked great!
I used the hair dryer approach on both my AN650 Burgman and DL1000 V-Strom. I had at least 1 sticker on each bike that was very difficult to remove. Had to heat it repeatedly and scratch it off bit by bit with my fingernail. I then used WD-40 to clean off the residual glue from the stubborn sticker.
It may have something to do with the production date of the machine and how long the stickers have been sitting.
One of the first things I tried when I got my 650 was to try to remove the labels. I attacked the one that tells you how to wash your windshield first. It did not come off easily and I did use GooGone after I got the label off and it seemed to discolor the dashboard slightly. I then went over it with Armor All and one would never know there was a label there. The other two stickers are still there.
I even took the chrome "SUZUKI" sticker off of the rear of my 650 using the hairdryer and Googone. A little polish and wax and you'd never know it was ever there.
I've learned over the years with removing stickers, pinstripes, etc., just be very careful getting the edge or corner started. Try not to use any sharp object that will scratch or dig the paint. Usually, heat and a fingernail is enought to get the edge up enough to grasp it in your fingertips and start pulling carefully. If it resists or starts to tear, just keep applying heat as you pull. Be patient!
