I found that aftermarket pipes did little, the pipe even 'gutted' the low end power for an HP or two at the top-end... not worth it to me.

If you ride in dusty conditions, as per K&N, you should be using a prefilter. Uni or even stock filter oiled with foam oil works better in dust. As for Dynojet...I use an A/F meter and O2 sensor. Dynojet needle is good but their recommendations for main jet is far far too rich. Your mileage will suffer. I'd recommend you switch to a keihin main in the 142.5 or if mileage is priorty (shouldnt be if you're re-jetting lol) go with a 140 main. Yes, even if you are using the bestest pipe ever made...

Also, Dynojet's recommendation of drilling slide to 1/8" is often too much for some KLR's, If you get stumble when you wick the throttle this is the reason. I recommend 7/64ths.
