There won't be much difference between your 1100 or an FI bike. It's only 5500' or so. I ride my 1100 from sea level to 10,000' and only have to bump up my idle a little at those very high altitudes. That's the beauty of a CV carb....they are darn good at self-adjustment for altitude. I'm normally riding between 2000'-5500'..... and have no absolutely no special adjustments.

You may consider dropping 1 jet size at some point in time, as you'll be just a touch rich on the mains, but not enough to worry about a whole lot.
