In theory it should be possible but for an official and therefore
supported answer I'd suggest contacting SUSE.

I guess you essentially need to do the opposite of what the migration
script available via TID 7017320[1] to migrate SLES12 SP1 to SLES12 SP1
for SAP Applications does.

If you can post the output from the following commands I can probably
work out the necessary opposite steps:

rpm -qa *-release
grep SLES /etc/default/grub
zypper lr
ls /etc/zypp/repos.d/
ls /etc/zypp/service.d/

HTH.

The question is more - why do you want that?
SLES for SAP Applications = 100% SLES (same packages, same versions) + more ( SLES HA Extention, priority support, additional services and packages)

So where/what is your problem you want to solve :)
