Default Stock jetting?

Bought an 07 a month ago and have about 1300 on it. Went over to the pass this past weekend and on the way back took SR 62 by Crater Lake which gets up to somewhere around 5500+ in elevation (not for sure on the exact ele.) Anyways, I felt a ton of power loss and wondered what the KLR was jetted for as far as elevation. I live at about 4200'. Any ideas?

It's lean from the factory. A lot of guys run two #4 washers under their needle with the fuel mix screw out to ~2 turns. Higher elevation only acerbates the problem.

Yup, you'll lose about 3% HP for every 1000 ft. in elevation above sea level.
