Welcome to the site. Being a new member you will not be able to post links or pictures until your post count reaches 15. It's not that you are doing anything wrong trying to post it.
As to your doohickey question. Basically when you do it is up to you. On your bike the doohickey isn't a problem but the springs Kawasaki uses are kinda weak. I don't see an immediate need for you to change it but if you do it now you won't be worrying about it.
As to who you get to do it the best recommendation is yourself. There are numerous how-to tutorials on the net and on this forum. You may be able to find another KLR owner in your area familiar with doing it and with the tools.
