Please advise!

I'm taking my bike this summer from Indianapolis to Whitefish, MT. I'll gain at least 2,300 feet in elevation. However, once I'm in the Glacier National Park, I may be riding at 6,000' or 7,000' elevation....10 times the elevation of Indy.

I have stage 1 set up. Should it be re-jetted before I go? I understand that it's better to run rich than lean but I don't want bike problems while I'm out there so if there are certain adjustments I can make before I go can you please give me suggestions? Thanks.

Rick,

My experience,, my home is approx 250 feet above sea level (Washington state Tacoma area) and my travels take me to some many high elevations up to 10,000+ feet (Bear Tooth pass) and I have never re-jetted. Performance does change with high elevations but it has never been any real problem.

Do we assume all y'all are running CVs?
