Hello Håkan,

please try "lvdisplay -v /dev/YourVG/YourLV | less" and have a look at the
information about distribution of the volume over the physical volumes.

Tell me if that answers your question.

BTW: if your RAID0 volume is spread over all the disks, you can't remove
     a disk because you can't remove a stripe without destroying the total
