'09 KLR Engine Problems

Hello all,

I am in need of some direction to troubleshoot my ‘09 KLR. I was riding down the highway going about 75 MPH and I lost all engine power immediately. The starter motor still turns the engine. I had battery power to headlight, tail lights, dash lights etc. Haven’t touched the bike mod-wise except for adding heated grips. Bike has about 11,000 miles.

Here is what I have done to date to trouble shoot:
Pulled the spark plug and confirmed I do have spark. Replaced spark plug.
Visually inspected the fuel lines and all lines are intact and connected.
Checked the pressure from the engine and when I hold my hand on the exhaust, I can feel a little pressure, but it doesn’t “pop” my hand off. Similarly, when I put my hand over the spark plug hole, I can feel pressure on my finger, but it doesn’t “pop” my finger off. From what I have read, I should have around 90 psi. Does this seem out of line?

What should I look at next to trouble shoot?
