Never ridden a 426 so cant compare the 2, but my 450 has NO problems pulling the front end up in whatever gear I choose, so somethings up with yours

For our altitude, you'll need to lean the bike out a lot, do the BK Mod, open the airbox and at a bare minimum install a PMB or GYRT insert. An FMF Q or similar pipe will help a lot.
My bike hauled balls. I had no problem out dragging an XR650R, KTM 525 EXC, KTM 450 EXC, etc every time.
If it's really cold out, you may need to block off part of one of the radiators. Otherwise, you'll foul plugs.

It runs fine for a while, then has this intermittent bogging in the midrange under acceleration. It starts and idles fine, and there is no backfiring.
Do I need to raise the needle as a first step and go from there? Like I said, bike ran awesome all last summer with no carb tinkering. Maybe worth noting that this problem developed after a very, very muddy ride over in Montrose which had all my breathers plugged up and the bike ran like shit & fouled the plug. Hasn't run right since then.
