radio removal

Question: Has anyone removed their radio? I never use mine and heard it takes up a useful 5L storage space.
Is it a big job?

Yes, I've removed mine..

Yes, it is quite a job but simple enough if you have the Triumph Service Manual and the patience of a Saint.

Well worth it in my opinion if you don't use the radio and you'd like that extra 5L of on-bike storage to put essentials like a mini compressor, puncture repair aerosol and a First Aid Kit.
My Plug n Go tyre plugger kit fits neatly under the pillion seat.

Have posted pictures here I'm sure - you might need to search for "Audio Unit Removal"

you have to loosen the screw holding the bottom, apart from those seen above.
The manual says that the buffer and the wheel has to be removed, it is not necessary.
remove the relay from the left side and there gently tilting the radio out
