I have not but what is there to gain with removal?
They can be a pita if you have tip over or over-fill and they get a lot of fuel in them. Hard-starting, rough-running for a period of time. A few ounces of weight. On some bikes maybe some reclaimed space or maintenance access.
I took mine off my DRZ because I knew it would end up on the ground during off-roading. For my other bikes it's the type of thing where if it gets in my way at some point off it comes.
