It had the same sh&*^y carb on it. Yes, you do have to drill out a osft metal cover to adjust the pilot. It is the capped off extrusion on the front of the carb. All you have to do is drill a small hole in the middle, then pry it out with an awl.
A friend recently bought one, he immediately removed the airbox cover and exhaust insert. Ir ran lean as hell. I raised the needle one notch and it seemed to really help the bike- a lot !!! Be sure to check the air filter, it came dry from the factory which will make the problem worse. It still has a hard starting problem, like 5-10 kicks when warm. There is also a jet kit for the bike, maybe a wise investment??
On my KLR, I shimmed the needle and raised the main to a 127.5 after freing the airbox and adding a supertrapp. I would imagine a little bigger than this would suffice for the KLX.
