comes up a lot and the general consensus after long debates is usually save the money for a bigger bike.
insurance - may cost you more with mods
legality - if it ups the power it may invalidate your insurance as well as having you driving otherwise in accordance with a licence (assuming you don't have a full licence). If the cops decide this they'll take your bike. If it's not E marked then you can get a fine regardless.
affect on bike - as you've stated, it's unpredictable and could cause flat spots as well as other issues.
Possibly harder to sell as people usually want a clean original bike as messing with it can cause the problems above.
Just save the money - seriously. Spend it on a bigger bike. I almost went down the 125 mod route and I'm glad I didn't as the cost really does outweigh the negligible returns.
