So I've got my new RG1XXV and it plays and feels amazing. I however have some problems with the trem, only when I remove the springs that keep the whole system ''zero''.

When I remove those springs everytime I pick a note it produces a flutter noise. So I guess that the bridge is a bit too loose for what it should be. How would I correct that? Even softer picks make the system flutter quite a bit.

Fluttering is normal on a Floyd that's fully floating. A stiffer spring setup reduces flutter, but that may require using heavier strings.

But to the degree that you can hear it even when picking normally?

Not sure about that, I have a Lo Pro with super light 9's and don't experience any flutter:

Flutter: To wave or flap rapidly in an irregular manner.

If I dig in hard I can, yes. I personally use a Schaller OFR, 10's in Eb. Some bridges do flutter more than others, and how much they flutter may depend on how they are set up.

Are there any adjustments I can make (easily) to reduce flutter? Except for thicker strings. I've been playing 10's only for about 1 year untill I got this one with 9's. Fell in love with the easy bends.

With a floyd rose system like yours, there isn't a whole lot else you can do other than use more springs. But iirc your guitar uses a ZPS system and I'm not sure if adding more springs is something you can even do. Barring that, either get heavier strings, or deal with the fluttering.
