I just got another bike, but if you can't do that then as others have said I would try and jet the bike properly for your altitude. Also there is the 685 kit and maybe a 700cc+ kit. You would have to get the cylinder rebored. I installed the 685 kit on my 08 KLR and it did not add much power but the engine ran smoother and did not burn oil.

It's been 6 1/2 years since he posted. Hopefully he figured it out.

It sounds like your carbing is a bit lean for where you normally ride, then altitude richens it up to run correctly.

705 kit

I have a 06 that I put a 705 piton and ported and polished the head. I left the stock valves and modified the carb, kln needle and jetting. Nice overall improvement in torque. Less Vibration with a much lighter piston. I am able to run the bike with a 16 tooth front sprocket and hold higher speeds more comfortably. www.mtechmotorcycles.com is one place you could use. I have talked with these guys and they seem to be competent. I purchased mine through schnitz racing and used a local machine shop. I love the bike, and have been riding the 705 for 3 years.

My 2006 KLR650 was stolen last Tuesday night.

It had a 688 bore kit, stage II head and FCR-MX39 carb. It pulled WAY better than stock and the power band seemed to never end.
