Excessive decel backfire (some is normal) is caused either by an air leak into the exhaust system (check that before rejetting to relieve this problem) or lean pilot jetting. 

 

1) your bike runs better at altitude than at 2000 feet

 

2) Engines run richer at altitude because of the lower air density

 

Ergo, your bike appears to be lean at idle, which condition is improved by moving to higher ground.

 

Start by cleaning up the pilot circuit, and consider going up one size on the pilot jet, just for starters.
