It depends on if they are under a clear coat or not.

If not it is easy, just heat with a hair dryer and they will lift a corner and be easy to remove.

If under a clear, they will need to be scraped off - this will ruin the paintwork.

Do NOT sand blast a Al frame with stickers as there will be a "shadow" left on the frame from the extra thickness needed to be eroded away.
