OP did you ever make it out to CO?

Anyway, I've put 140,000 miles on my 2 carbureted V-Stars (650, 1100) over the past 9 years, riding from North Carolina to Denver/Colorado Springs ... without a single problem ... and nearly all on ethanol mixture, I'm wondering where you get your information?? All I've ever had to do is set the idle screw a tad higher when I get in higher altitudes, and all is fine.
FWIW, the 950 is fuel injected.
