There are many ways you can do this, i ended up trying two methods.
I thought the Suzuki sticker on the rear fender looked a bit tacky, and the tyre info sticker was a straight up eye sore:

I hear from the factory there is a sticker on the tank also, but the PO must have taken it off so i didnt have to
I first boiled some water and soaked 2 rags in it, i then placed the rags over the stickers to be removed and left for a couple minutes.
I then got a credit card to pick up a corner, which allowed me to peel off the Suzuki sticker very easily.
The other one though wasn't having any of it. So i abandoned the water idea and got a hair dryer. I warmed the entire sticker and got a corner up with the credit card.

I used a gentle sawing motion with the card to lift the sticker off, applying heat as i went along.
Once its off it will probably look like this:

So i used Goo Gone, which removes glue residue. You can also use WD and a rag.

After wiping the majority off, i got some very hot water and washing up liquid to clean the area.

I noticed a few surface scratches so i used some Scratch X to remove those, followed by some wax polish, and done.

Hope this helps anyone thinking of doing it.

Could you tell me where you got the rear fender tip from, it finishes the fender nicely.
Thanks.

I tried the hair dryer on one of the 2 tank stickers on my Intruder - Managed to get a corner up and the rest came of in 1mm sq pieces. Took hours even with constant warmer with the dryer, but the glue residue came of easy enough with 'Sticky Stuff' remover.  I'll try the hot towel method on the next sticker.  Anyone now what glue they use on these things - got some Ikea flat pack that needs building!

Plucked up the courage (and found some spare time) to attempt to remove the second sticker of my tank.  Armed with hair dryer, wife's credit card and 'sticky stuff remover', set to work and in an instance it was gone (40 minutes actually).  Quick wash down with soapy water and  polished up with Auto Glyms special 'dark colour' formula polish and it looks great.  Added bonus - wife's credit card melted and can now save some money!

Certainly does - and it really beggars the question as to why manufacturers insist on sticking them on such prominent places.  Can't see Rolls Royce slapping one on the drivers door of there latest model!

Yeah, the tyre info sticker looks a mess but isn't it strange how subjective these sticker things are ?

I put a Suzuki sticker back on the bottom of my rear mudguard coz the previous owner had removed it and I liked the look on other bikes I'd seen. 

Each to their own eh ?

This has worked for me on numerous bikes over the years.
1: heat and peel with hair dryer carefully (can be a ball ache sometimes )
2: the shitty glue bit is simple, small amount of wd40 on a clean rag and rub.
Hope this helps some of you
