New Member- First bike
Bought my first bike a couple weeks ago, a 2017 KLR 650! I live on the east side of the Sierra Nevada in Mammoth Lakes, Ca. I am learning to ride while learning the bike all at once and, for me, this is the perfect bike for cruising 2 lane highways and forest service dirt roads in the area.
There have been some upgrades/modifications on this bike but what I am considering most at this time is what needs to be done with the carburetor now that the bike is living at 8,000 ft of altitude. I will often take it up to 10,000 ft on rides as well. Sounds like the airbox mod (snorkel removal) will be a great addition as well. Perhaps this will be enough without re-jetting? Anyone living at 7,500'+ that has experience to share? By the way, the bike was purchased in a town with an elevation of 250', nearly sea level, and has a stock carb setup.
I am sure I'll have more inquiries as time goes on but for now, happy to be here, and thanks for any input.
