Re-jetting is the answer

First thanks to the you guys who have responded to my thread about rejetting, it has been helpfull.
Now I have got my Two Brothers slipon on the the bike and yesterday I rejected the carb and talk about a different bike now, way better throttle respond, overall it is like getting a new and more powerfull bike. I am very satisfied vith the way it turned out.
I only have one problem with it, now the bike wants to go to fast and pop a wheelie on regular basis, but I think that is "operator fine tuning".

Again thanks

Hey Tson, got my KLR re-jetted yesterday, and you're right, what a difference!!! between the jets and the exhaust mods, it's like a whole new bike
Good luck keeping that front wheel down

Hey Engimuneer
I put a dynojet kit in my bike , I did the stage 2, e-clip in no.2 grove, drilled the slide and used the dynojet 142 jet, change the air filter to a twinair filter and put a Two Brothers slip on exhaust on the bike, it seems to be running good, I have not been riding very much since I did the mods, so I might have to fine tune it when it gets warmer.
I hope it is usefull.

Good point engimuneer, here's what I have on my 2008 KLR650
Where I live the altitude is pretty much sea level, and it gets pretty hot in the summer, at least for a few days, so I wanted a lot of fuel for those hot days!

152 Main Jet
45 Pilot Jet
Drilled the slide to 7/64"
.22 cent mod, used one washer on the needle
Set the air screw to 2 turns out
Removed all smog components
Total cost: about $17 including shipping for the jets, and about 1 hour of labor
