Legal advice: Don't remove 33bhp restrictors

It may be tempting if you are on a 33bhp licence to derestrict your bike, but it's really not worth it.

As your licence wouldn't be suitable for the class of motorcycle you were now on, you would be open to the charge of having no licence, and possibly no insurance depending on the wording of the policy.

In either case, it's a maximum £1000 fine and three to six points, and possible seizure of your bike. Anyone who cannot prove they have a licence for the vehicle they are in charge of, could have it seized.

In which case you're looking at a £120 fee, plus daily storage fees with the ultimate sanction of crushing if it's not claimed.
