Yup, starved for oil. Another example that all KLR's need to have the oil screen cleaned sooner rather than later.
You need to pull the right side cover and clean the screen. Also take the oil pump apart and check for scoring.
PM sent about a deal on a head and every last part you might need. I have a good oil pump if you need it also.
You shouldn't need a cam chain, they're pretty tough on the KLR...tensioner might be fully extended.
