    Hi mincepie,

    System Preferences > GPG Suite Preferences does not hold any keys. It just displays existing sec/pub keys so you can select and define your default key.

    To remove keys from GPG Keychain, make a backup of all your keys: This KB-article explains how to backup keys or your entire .gnupg folder.

    Then remove the keys you want to remove from GPG Keychain

    All the best,
    steve

    Is there a specific reason, why you want to remove keys?
