I have never had any problems with it, but I'd like to hear suggestions on the proper way to "uncork' it and maximize it's potential power. I'm not going to do anything internally until it's time for a rebuild. Is there any slip on pipe that's the "best" for the KLR? Any responses will be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!

It's hard to get any appreciable power gains out of a KLR without spending significant money. Changing the muffler doesn't do much except lighten you wallet.

There's a guy named Patman that has documented dyno runs with various mods. His page is here.
