The 125,000 btu furnace is slightly oversized but should not be enough to cause issue.It is not recommended to block off any burners. If you do you are accepting liability of any catastrophic issue as well as voiding warranty on unit by making modifications.
It might be possible to put a plug in the place of the farthest burner from igniter and relocate flame sensor to that burner, but I do not recommend.
