AND, if you screw it up it will cost a bunch to have a pro fix it. Carb tuning is a black art. If you have never done it you will never get it right the first time. or the second and likely not the third.

Of course, it would be an adventure, take lots of pictures

You have to decide if you want to spend your time fixing something that isnt broke or uh....Riding.

Also, if your KLR beat an 03 XR 250 I would be suspect that the XR never got out of first gear.

If you want to keep up with your buddies, try heading out in the lead on some tight single track. then they have to keep up with you.

Good luck
