Suzuki SV650 47bhp legal exhaust

Hello motorcycling world,I am new to all of this, so please be kind. Today I bought myself a 2008 Suzuki SV650 Sport which I will need to restrict to 47bhp to meet the new A2 licencing laws.

Motorcycle cover removal

Do Local Council Traffic Wardens have the legal right to remove protective rain covers from motorbikes in order to issue a penalty charge notice or are they committing an offence? (i.e. Interfering with private property) After all they are not law enforcement officers(police) who I imagine would have the right.Also I see many motorcycles in central with covers over their rear registration plates. Are the council traffic wardens allowed to remove these?Many thanks in advance to anyone who can tell me what the legal position is on this issue.Kind regards,Pit
