SOURCE: I have a 2005 KTM 525 SX that burns alot of oil,

May sound strange but what does the smoke sell like?
Also have you noticed any issues with low radiator fluid?
If it has a sweet odor it could be from cooling fluid getting into the cylinder.
About the only way your going to know for sure without an inspection of the cylinder and head is to keep a close eye on the levels of both the engine oil and the coolant. This also uses twin eaton pumps for pressure lubrication so that could also be a factor. A 525 has a lot of power to go around so even a 20% decrease would be difficult to notice unless your on it everyday. I can tell you that if you think there is an issue with blow-by or a blow head gasket it needs to be taken care of before there is a critical component failure.
Good luck.

Can i restrict a ktm 525 to 33 bhp


yes. like any bike your local dealer can restrict it for you.
i would question why you would want to restrict the 525 when it would be easier to get a 250 and restrict that instead. the difference would be much less noticeable and you wouldn't feel like you were riding a castrated bike. i'd wait for your licence upgrade to get a 525. or just do your accelerated access in the mean time and get the 525 in it's natural form. if you can afford a 525 you can afford accelerated access.

2009 KTM 250 exc-f excessive oil use, no apparent oil leaks or blue smoke


It is normal for these bikes to use some oil. A typical, maintained 250 4 stroke will use a pint of oil or more in one day of riding - depending on a lot of variables, of course. Oil consumption on these four strokes is quite typical.
