Up Grading the Alternater on 08 KLR

I'm new to this forum and hope I make sense. I'm trying to locate someone to upgrade the alternater on the 08 KLR.
Its orginal output is 33 watts. I would like to bring it up to atleast 80 to 100 watts.
1. Is this possible?
2. Is there someone locale in the Fremont, Calif area?
I have tried to contact a Ricky Stature Manufacturing but my email was returned and the phnone number is no longer valid.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

The older KLR's had about 70-75 watts of spare power to run extra's on. The 08 has more spare wattage than previous years. The only manufacter that I'm aware of is Electrosport and I wouldn't recommend them because that had serious quality control issues that can leave you stranded. Read here.
You can install LED lights in the dash and tail lights to gain more useable wattage for other things.
